JANUARY 25, 2016
As we enter a new decade of partnership with LUMA | La Trobe University Museum of Art, the Ateneo Art Gallery (AAG) presents an exhibition of contemporary Australian art featuring three video and photographic installations dealing with issues of identity and representation from the Indigenous perspective.
Since 2005, the Art Exchange Program has been enriched through visits and residencies by Ateneo Art Awards recipients, hosted by the La Trobe University Visual Arts Centre (Bendigo) and LUMA | La Trobe University Museum of Art (Melbourne) and a bi-annual exchange of exhibitions between AAG and LUMA.
Octoroon opens as part of the series of events marking the 70th Anniversary of diplomatic ties between the Philippines and Australia and in line with the 3-day symposium on “Modes of Indigenous Modernity: Identities. Stories. Pathways.” organized by the Philippines Australia Studies Centre, La Trobe University and the Philippines Australia Studies Network, Ateneo de Manila University.
