This exhibition highlights the diversity of Aboriginal art in Victoria.

From Where I Stand: Place, Culture and Politics seeks to share stories through the work of 17 Australian artists, all First Peoples of this country, who now call Victoria home.

It features works from both established and emerging artists Paola Balla, Eric Brown, Megan Cope, Eileen Harrison, Daniel Kelly, Lisa Kennedy, Ben McKeown, Brian McKinnon, Patrice Muthaymiles Mahoney, Josh Muir, Steaphan Paton, Steven Rhall, Patsy Smith, Ray Thomas, Peter Waples-Crowe, Lisa Waup and Kevin Williams.

The works contribute to a dialogue of contemporary Aboriginal vision; the landscape and the city; identity and Australia’s colonial history; and the political discourse that makes up the Victorian Aboriginal diaspora.

The exhibition is part of the Birrarung Community Arts Program
at Bunjilaka Aboriginal Cultural Centre. For 14 years, the program has hosted dynamic and culturally significant exhibitions, celebrating and sharing the creative expression of Koorie Culture.
