Indigenous Visions


Indigenous Visions is a collaboration between BLAK C.O.R.E. (Care of Radical Energy) – Museums and Collections, University of Melbourne, and Guggenheim Abu Dhabi.

The seminar Indigenous Visions is an opportunity to promote and support a collaborative network that from the grassroots of Indigenous ways of being expands within the space of the institutional. The forum has been curated by Professor Brook Andrew; initiated through conversation and ideas between Stephanie Rosenthal, Simon Mordant and Rose Hiscock and participants of the forum.

Throughout a daily programme of conversations and performances organised for April 16th, 2024, in parallel to the opening days of the 60th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia, we aim to share how practitioners, supporters, and communities understand and support Indigenous art practices and globally vocalise their importance amongst humanity and the natural and spiritual environments.

BLAK C.O.R.E. Museums and Collections, and Guggenheim Abu Dhabi strive to centre Indigenous and First Peoples cultures and perspectives in their visions, collaborating with international partners, artists, communities, and curators to vocalise and testify to the power of Indigenous cultures as a central part of global art and life.

Tuesday 16 April, 10am – 6pm
Location: Centro Culturale Don Orione Artigianelli, Venice
