The works of art in Emerging Elders are bold and contrasting, and the artists highlighted in the exhibition, although considered emerging, have years of personal experience and cultural knowledge that inform their painting. Elders guide Indigenous communities today as they have done for generations, and their ability to visualise significant stories gives rise to some of Australia's most dynamic and stunning contemporary works of art.
Tina Baum, Curator, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art, and exhibition curator, discusses the works in Emerging Elders.
