These include Destiny Deacon, Tony Albert, Keemon Williams and Amrita Hepi. Further conversations with NGV.s Director Tony Ellwood AM, Senior Curator Myles Russell-Cook and Curator of Australian and First Nations Art Sophie Gerhard, the podcast contextualises the breadth and diversity of First Peoples art and design; how it has developed over 65,000 years; and the wealth of disciplines utilised by practitioners today.
