JXSH MVIR: Forever I Live


JXSH MVIR: Forever I Live

9 Mar 2024 – 14 Jun 2024

Josh Muir: Forever I Live is the first major solo retrospective exhibition of the late Josh Muir (born 1991), following his passing in 2022.

Josh Muir was born and raised on Wadawurrung Country in Ballarat, Victoria. The exhibition title is taken from an artwork of the same name – Forever I Live (2015) – and is a reference to the ongoing legacy that continues to live in Josh’s artwork beyond life itself. JXSH MVIR: Forever I Live is co-curated by Josh’s partner Shanaya Sheridan, his mother Justine Berg and the curatorial team at KHT.

His works simultaneously maintain the continuous tradition of storytelling that is inseparable from his cultural identity as a Gunditjmara, Yorta Yorta and Barkindji man.
