Christian Thompson is pleased to announce his position as Research Affiliate at the Pitt Rivers Museum, Oxford. This is a prodigious appointment which Thompson is humbled and proud to receive.
"In 2010 Thompson made history when he became the first Aboriginal Australian to be admitted into the University of Oxford in its 900-year history, and began to work closely with the collections and staff at the Pitt Rivers Museum. In 2012 Thompson exhibited a body of new work in response to the Museum’s collections titled We Bury Our Own, which travelled internationally to great acclaim. In 2016 the Museum opened a permanent display of Thompson’s work on its Lower Gallery, including work from We Bury Our Own and his 2016 series The Museum of Others."
