Connecting the Dots: First Peoples Art from the NGV with Tony Armstrong

by

A four-episode series that delves into the stories, works and artists in the NGV’s globally significant collection of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art and design. Inspired by the new ground floor galleries Wurrdha Marra, located at The Ian Potter Centre: NGV Australia, the podcast series features interviews between Armstrong and trailblazing figures of First Peoples creativity who are challenging stereotypes and pushing contemporary discourse into new and surprising contexts. These include Destiny Deacon, Tony Albert, Keemon Williams and Amrita Hepi. Further conversations with NGV’s Director Tony Ellwood AM, Senior Curator Myles Russell-Cook and Curator of Australian and First Nations Art Sophie Gerhard, the podcast contextualises the breadth and diversity of First Peoples art and design; how it has developed over 65,000 years; and the wealth of disciplines utilised by practitioners today.
