Affirmation

23 Apr 2020 - 26 Jul 2020

Affirmation. A proposition that is true.

Affirmation is a major exhibition that explores truth-telling through a First Nations lens.

First Nations people, their stories and images have been obscured and manipulated throughout history. Affirmation empowers Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to tell their own stories, capture their own truths, and express themselves through their own lens.

Bringing together some of Victoria’s most exciting multi-disciplinary Indigenous photographers – Paola Balla (Wemba Wemba, Gunditjmara), Deanne Gilson (Wadawurrung), Tashara Roberts and Pierra Van Sparkes (Pibbulman), each artist will explore the concept of truth in the context of place, ancestral identity and cultural pride.

Affirmation is proudly supported by the Metro Tunnel Creative Program and Gandel Philanthropy.
