Omission: Michael Cook & Yhonnie Scarce

Glenn Iseger-Pilkington has curated Linden Centre for Contemporary Arts' current exhibition omission. This exhibition explores Australia's tragic colonial history, in particular the overt culture and practice of division, exclusion and omission of Indigenous peoples, their cultures, their landscapes and the creatures that occupy them. The exhibition continues until 28 October 2012.

Seven indigenous artists Bindi Cole, Michael Cook, Fiona Foley, Sandra Hill, Danie Mellor, Reko Rennie and Yhonnie Scarce   each interrogate these omissions. They give voice to those who did not have that opportunity while simultaneously paying homage to their Indigenous ancestors. They make a loud and unapologetic declaration that such injustices and atrocities shall not go unwritten, unmade or unremembered.
