If you are looking to learn more about Indigenous art, here are three books available online at #NGVdesignstore to help you start. • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art in the Collection of the National Gallery of Victoria: A major overview of the work of Indigenous artists of the past 130 years. The publication reveals the influence of early Indigenous objects on contemporary dialogues; explains systems of representation in Indigenous art; and explores the ways artists have responded to change and have incorporated new aesthetic principles and artistic concepts, images and imaginaries over time. • DESTINY: This publication is the largest in-depth study of Australian artist and Kuku and Erub/Mer (North-East Cape York and Torres Strait) woman Destiny Deacon’s practice ever to appear in book form. Deacon is, amongst other things, known for having coined the term ‘blak’, in a reclaiming and recasting of a word with myriad connotations of colonialism and prejudice. Deacon’s work interrogates the way in which Aboriginal people have been, and continue to be, misrepresented within popular culture. Through all-blak scholarship and images of Deacon’s work spanning more than thirty years, gain a strong sense of Deacon as artist and person, and of her enduring fascination with the human condition. • Welcome to Country: Professor Marcia Langton AM answers questions such as what does ‘Country' mean to Indigenous people and covers topics such as Indigenous languages and customs, history, native title, art and dance, storytelling, and cultural awareness and etiquette for visitors. This is followed by a directory of Indigenous tourism experiences across the region.
We’re excited to announce we’ll be reopening the NGV on Saturday 27 June. In line with the Victorian Chief Health Officer’s guidance, we’ll be implementing public health and physical distancing measures including free timed ticketing, queue management systems, increased deep cleaning of facilities and hand sanitiser stations to keep our community safe. We’ll keep you updated here with all the details over the coming weeks. We can’t wait to welcome you back! #NGVEveryDay • Regram: @melroselanescapes
