Vernon Ah Kee: The Island
Time Out says
One of Australia’s leading contemporary artists is taking over Campbelltown Arts Centre with this wide-ranging exhibition
Vernon Ah Kee is one of the most diverse artists working in Australia at the moment, with work that ranges from large-scale drawings to text-based works, installations and video. He offers searing critiques of Australian culture from an Indigenous perspective (as a member of the Kuku Yalandji, Waanji, Yidinji and Gugu Yimithirr peoples) and is set to do so in this show at Campbelltown Arts Centre. The focus is on his video work (including a three-channel video called ‘The Island’, which features testimony from two asylum seekers) but there’s also work from across his 20-year career in all forms.
