I Object Branding

FREE ADMISSION | GALLERY OPEN: Wednesday to Sunday 10.30am – 3.30pm | Closed Monday, Tuesday & Public Holidays

I, Object considers the many complex relationships Indigenous Australian artists continue to have with objects – from the histories informing their creation to the social and cultural consequences of their collection. The exhibition demonstrates the great pride and inspiration of inherited cultural practices and historical Indigenous objects, and reveals the difficulties posed by their collection and estrangement.

I, Object features contemporary painting, sculpture, and installation by leading Queensland artists Vernon Ah Kee, Tony Albert, Michael Boiyool Anning, Fiona Foley, Danie Mellor, Christian Thompson, Warraba Weatherall and others alongside 20 historical shields, boomerangs and clubs.

Join us for the Opening of I, Object 5.30pm Friday 5 April, with Simon Elliott, Deputy Director, Queensland Art Gallery / Gallery of Modern Art.
