First Nations’ First Person Contributor #3 Daniel Boyd

First Nations’ First Person is a series of talks and workshops hosted by the Sculpture and Spatial Practice Workshop bringing the School of Art & Design community into dialogue with prominent contemporary Australian First Nations’ artists and curators. As the third contributor to the series, Daniel Boyd will give a talk on his work and then will engage a group of ANU students in a workshop on his artistic processes.

Daniel Boyd of the Kudjila/Gangalu peoples was born in Cairns, Queensland, in 1982 and lives and works in Sydney. He reinterprets Eurocentric perspectives of Australian history, often appropriating images that have played significant roles in the formation and dissemination of that history.

Boyd has exhibited his work nationally and internationally since 2005. He is currently included in Where The Oceans Meet, curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist, Asad Raza, Gabriela Rangel, and Rina Carvajal at the Museum of Art and Design, Miami Dade College, Miami. Earlier this year he participated in Art Cologne, Cologne, Germany (2019) and Art Basel Hong Kong, Hong Kong (2019). Selected prior group exhibitions include the 3rd National Indigenous Art Triennial: Defying Empire, National Gallery of Australia, Canberra (2018); 20th Biennale of Sydney: The future is already here - its just not evenly distributed, curated by Stephanie Rosenthal (2016) and All the World's Futures, 56th Venice Biennale, Venice (2015).

Daniel Boyd studied at the ANU School of Art & Design from 2002 - 2005.
