Obsession Artist Talk
Location: Contemporary Art Tasmania
Fiona Foley will discuss her CAST exhibition Obsession.
Foley’s art practice is grounded in Australian history and often brings focus to buried accounts from a colonial past that can contribute to the shaping of polity, identity and nationality for many contemporary Aboriginal Australians.
Foley is a senior Australian artist who has exhibited regularly since 1988, including in numerous international exhibitions. Her works are held in major public collections across Australia and beyond. She was a founding member of Boomalli Aboriginal Artists Cooperative in 1987 and has served on the boards of Artspace and Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney, and the Institute of Modern Art, Brisbane. Fiona Foley lives and works in Brisbane.
