Christian Thompson - Howl For Your Troubles (2011).

This year, the AAMU – Museum for contemporary Aboriginal art - must close its doors after sixteen years. Framer Framed and AAMU have collaborated on several projects over the last decade. To not let the closure pass by unnoticed, Framer Framed and AAMU-curator Georges Petitjean jointly present a selection of works from the collection in the Framer Framed exhibition space.

In the future everything will be as certain as it used to be gathers works of renowned artists such as Brook Andrew, Gordon Bennett, Michael Cook and Djambawa Marawili, from the AAMU museum and related collections. In their works the artists comment on the historical and contemporary position of the indigenous Aboriginal peoples in Australian society. They raise issues such as institutional racism, land dispossession and land rights, migration and displacement, colonial history, cultural identity and self-representation. The artists focus on the Australian political situation, yet transcend the local by forging connections to similar issues and events on a global scale.

Participating artists:
Vernon Ah Kee, Brook Andrew, Gordon Bennett, Bindi Cole, Michael Cook, Brenda L. Croft, Blak Douglas & Adam Geczy, Gordon Hookey, Djambawa Marawili, Tracey Moffatt, Brian Robinson, Darren Siwes, Christian Thompson, Nora Wompi

Title borrowed from the work by Gordon Bennett.
