"My Top 3 Symposium"
2008-10-05 until 2008-10-05
National Museum of Australia
Canberra, AC, AU Australia

Australia's leading Aboriginal photographer, Wayne Quilliam, will be joined by a panel of experts to present and discuss his three most intriquing Indigenous photographs at the National Museum in Canberra on Sunday, October 5, 2008. In association with the A Different Time: The Expedition Photographs of Herbert Basedow 1903-1928 exhibition, Quilliam and the panel will explore the ways images continue to be used by Indigenous and non-Indigenous people, as well as their contemporary role as the starting point for historians, artists, curators and communities. One of the original members of absolutearts.com, Wayne Quilliam has used a Premiere Portfolio to promote his work since 2001.

"Demystify the myth and reality of Indigenous visual imaging is not only necessary but essential to the understanding of who we are as a people. The human element of photographs is emotive and provocative, it inspires one to find depth, meaning and perhaps even a revelation that the vision captured by a 'camera' is more than just an image", Quilliam says. "I'm intrigued by the differing perceptions of how Indigenous people are or should be represented in photographs in particular by my own people and other international Indigenous communities I work with. After recent trips to Mexico and Bolivia my own views have dramatically changed," he adds.

The discussion will be held in Visions Theatre
National Museum of Australia
ACT 2601 Australia
Canberra
