The second National Indigenous Art Triennial, unDisclosed, charts the trajectory of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art in Australia since the first triennial, Culture Warriors, in 2007. In tracing this path, the second triennial explores the work of 20 exemplary Indigenous artists from around Australia.
As a series, the National Indigenous Art Triennial places Indigenous contemporary art practice at the front and centre of Australian art. It explores the presence, voice, concerns and celebrations of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people through the visual arts.
Thematically, unDisclosed goes behind the scenes to discover the often invisible framework of motivations and meanings upon which artists ideas, narratives and works of art rest. It is a celebration and examination of the importance of an Indigenous voice in framing an Australian identity and serves as a platform for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists determined to present their individual and shared perspectives.
