Summary
"The world is not a foreign land is a particular kind of curatorial exercise. It began in thinking about curatorial practice in relation to what is broadly known as Indigenous contemporary art; a term used in Australia to refer to the myriad of practices that have, over the past four decades or so, emerged from the many ‘remote’ Aboriginal communities that are scattered throughout the northern and central regions of the country. The project takes as a given that exhibition-making provides a unique model for a certain kind of collective thinking; guided by the often open-ended creativity of artists, it is a formal structure that should welcome and encourage questions rather than present definitively staged answers. Although the title of the exhibition suggests a certain expansiveness, its borders are defined by a series of very specific localities. Crossing three geographically and culturally distinct regions - the Tiwi Islands, the Kimberley and North-eastern Arnhem Land—the included artists present sometimes strikingly different perspectives. However, seen together, the work of Timothy Cook, Djambawa Marawili, Nyapanyapa Yunupingu, Ngarra, Rusty Peters and Freda Warlapinni, also reveals a series of productive and meaningful relationships. While a number of these - such as the different approaches to Yolngu art displayed by Marawilli and Yunupingu, or the generational influence between Cook and Warlapinni - are clearly defined, others are far more propositional, driven instead by a feeling for how certain objects and, by extension, certain practices, might relate in the physical space of an exhibition." -- From 'about' web page
