COMING SOON – BLAK DESIGN MATTERS
BLAK DESIGN MATTERS
A national survey of Contemporary Indigenous Design curated by Jefa Greenaway.
As Australian Indigenous designers are leading a movement away from collaborative or consultative models to Indigenous-led design, this survey exhibition showcases contemporary Indigenous design projects from across Australia. From fashion, interiors, and product design to landscape, architecture and town planning, the exhibited projects will interrogate how Indigenous design is defined, received, and made visible in Australia’s contemporary design landscape, asking the question, what is meaningful Indigenous design and why does it matter?
