22 August 2011 | An exhibition curated by Melbourne artist Bindi Cole is currently on view in New York at the Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Arts.

Saying No: Reconciling Spirituality and Resistance in Indigenous Australian Art features sculpture, installation, painting, photography, video and mixed media works that highlight the use of visual art as a form of social and political protest in the current Australian Aboriginal struggle for the right to representation.

"The role of a contemporary Aboriginal artist, in my opinion, is to provoke," says Cole.

Exhibiting artists include Tony Albert, Daniel Boyd, Maree Clarke, Bindi Cole, Vicki Couzens, Fiona Foley, James Henry & Oliver Winter-Irving, Dennis Nona, Zane Saunders and Yhonnie Scarce.


Saying No: Reconciling Spirituality and Resistance in Indigenous Australian Art, curated by Bindi Cole, continues until 30 October 2011.
