portraits from the Movement 1978-2003 [exhibition curatorship]

Research output: Non-traditional research outputCuratorship

Abstract

This historic exhibition of more than 70 portraits is a unique collection of both an historical and retrospective nature that chronicles the cultural and political struggles of two generations of Indigenous Australians and their continuing testimony to gain autonomy. The striking black and white photographs included in the exhibition feature many of the key figures central to the struggles - activists such as Marcia Langton and Gary Foley; Mum Shirl and other community leaders; artists Wandjuk Marika and Thancoupie; and writers, dancers, filmmakers and photographers. The portraits on display in Proof are testament to Juno Gemes' engagement with the people who make up the Movement - the immense relationship between the photographer and subject is unmistakable in every portrait.
