The exhibition brings together two artists who share Indigenous heritage and a unique artistic approach.
Both artists skillfully blend a pop sensibility with a deep understanding of how prevailing narratives and cultural influences shape our society. Presented in partnership with Container.
Adam Khalil, a member of the Ojibway tribe, is an artist and filmmaker from Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan and currently based in Brooklyn, New York.
His work centers indigenous narratives in the present — and looks towards the future — through the use of innovative nonfiction forms.
His films and installations have been exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art, Lincoln Center, the Whitney Museum of American Art, Walker Arts Center, and the Sundance Film Festival among other institutions.
Keemon Williams is a queer Meanjin (Brisbane) based artist of Koa, Kuku Yalanji and Meriam Mir descent.
He utilizes an array of mediums old and new to expand his relationships with location, personal histories and cultural plasticity. Through practice he forges belonging within all parts of the self.
John Edmond works around film. A researcher and programmer, he currently runs Container, a moving image and film screening series.
He has programmed for Brisbane International Film Festival, Queensland Film Festival, Institute of Modern Art, UQ Art Museum and other institutes. He has curated exhibitions held at QAGoMA, IMA and Outer Space Gallery.
