In This Issue

September 2018

We acknowledge and pay our respect to the many Aboriginal nations across this land, traditional custodians, Elders past and present; in particular the Guringai people of the Eora Nation where Art Almanac has been produced.

We present ourselves to the world to assert and understand our identity; artists take this feeling and give it form. In very different ways the paintings of Genevieve Felix Reynolds and Amber Boardman consider how something meaningful might come from the Internet. Kieran Butler’s photography and drag articulates their non-binary self, whereas Tony Albert’s work challenges the aesthetics of recollection and representation of Indigenous peoples. Drawing on life, Julia deVille’s taxidermy and holograms augment overlooked creatures whilst Ken Unsworth stages tension from the inside out.
