Abdul Abdullah at Buxton Contemporary
24 Apr 2019
Abdul Abdullah is currently part of National Anthem, a group exhibition at Buxton Contemporary, Melbourne, Australia.
The exhibition curated by Dr. Kate Just 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, National Anthem 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.
