The annual Revealed Symposium is an important forum for the contemporary Aboriginal art sector, with key stakeholders coming together to discuss the major issues affecting the industry.

This year renowned Brisbane-based artist Michael Cook will deliver the keynote address. Considered one of Australia’s most exciting contemporary Aboriginal artists, he will discuss his photomedia practice and recent exhibitions including Art Basel Hong Kong 2016.

The Symposium will also feature a lively panel debate entitled How Do You Sell? Making and Marketing Indigenous Art, discussing strategies to overcome the challenges of selling art from remote regional locations.
