Ochre and Ink – “Art Can Break All the Rules”

This Wednesday, July 4th, Artlink Australia presents a panel in which artists, curators and writers discuss aspects of Contemporary Australian Indigenous Art. Panelists include curator, activist and writer Djon Mundine OAM, member of the Bandjalung people of New South Wales and the concept curator for the 1988 Aboriginal Memorial installation permanently exhibited at the National Gallery of Australia;  writer and painter Zhou Xiaoping who has collaborated with many Indigenous artists and whose work is displayed at the National Gallery of China; and Megan Cope, a member of the Brisbane-based Indigenous Art Collective ProppaNOW.

After the discussion, there will be a screening of the documentary, Ochre and Ink, the extraordinary story of Chinese-Australian artist Zhou Xiaoping and his inspiring but sometimes controversial 23 year collaboration with Indigenous artists in remote Arnhem Land. To learn more about this inspiring and fascinating story – as well as see clips and interviews with the cast and crew –  visit the film’s website.
