Christian Thompson is thrilled to have two works included in National Anthem at Buxton Contemporary. Both Dead Tongue (2015) and Refuge (2014) are showing as a part of the exhibition, curated by Kate Just.
"Presenting a cacophonous array of artistic voices and perspectives, National Anthem brings together 24 artists, from a range of generations, who critically address Australian national identity. Built around key works in the Michael Buxton Collection, together with works sourced from beyond the collection, this project reflects on the ways that the desire for a singular national identity often excludes Indigenous histories and denies the multiplicity of voices, cultures and experiences that enrich, contest and enhance Australian life."
