‘Telstra NATSIAA’ demonstrates the richness and diversity of contemporary Indigenous art practices, and the pre-eminence of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander voices within the visual arts. This year’s finalists’ exhibition showcases the work of 68 First Nation artists from across Australia – from Christopher Pease’s final installment of a six-part series referring to the 1820 etching of the south-west coast of Australia and the slaying of Nyoongar tribesman, Yagan, to Nici Cumpston’s photograph focusing on the crises facing the Darling River and our responsibility to take action.
