Victorian Indigenous Art Awards 2014

Saturday, August 23, 2014 - Sunday, October 05, 2014, 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Mars and Timken Galleries
Admission: Free

The 2014 Victorian Indigenous Art Awards exhibition of finalists presents the distinctive and recent work of Victoria's Indigenous artists, drawing from their cultural heritage, personal experiences and art practice.

Visitors to the exhibition will experience an extraordinary diversity, ranging from works that are representative of current contemporary art practice to works which reinterpret and reclaim traditional modes and imagery in new and exciting ways.

The Awards reflect the vibrant Indigenous arts community and continuing cultural practice in Victoria and challenge the stereotypical notions of Aboriginal art.

The Victorian Indigenous Art Awards is a Victorian Government program delivered through Arts Victoria and presented by the Art Gallery of Ballarat.
