Hear Next Wave artists Megan Cope and Ryan Presley in conversation with Kimberley Moulton, Project Officer for Bunjilaka Aboriginal Cultural Centre at Melbourne Museum.
Megan Cope and Ryan Presley encapsulate two distinct visual art practices both exploring notions of colonisation. Join them around the table at Next Wave’s Festival Club as they unpack their artistic methodologies, discuss how history and heritage impact their practices and unpick contemporary contexts for the changing face of Australian Indigenous art.
Megan Cope is a Quandamooka woman from south-east Queensland. She has a diverse practice that investigates issues relating to identity, environment and mapping. Her painting, video and installation works have been presented both nationally and internationally at the ARC Biennial in Brisbane, PARAsite Gallery in Hong Kong and The Australian Embassy in Washington DC. Megan is a member of the Aboriginal art collective proppaNOW.
Ryan Presley was born in Alice Springs, Australia in 1987, and currently lives and works in Brisbane. His father’s family originates from the Moyle River region (Peppimenarti / Port Keats) of the Northern Territory, while his mother’s family were Scandinavian immigrants to Australia. Ryan utilises his own heritage and experiences to contribute other understandings of the social and cultural nature of past and present colonial Australia.
Kimberley Moulton is a descendent of the Yorta-Yorta people from the James and Cooper family of north-east Victoria. Kimberley is a curator and writer and currently the Project Officer for Bunjilaka Aboriginal Cultural Centre at Melbourne Museum. Kimberley’s area of interest is Contemporary Blak Art and Museology.
