Curated by creative director Philip Boon, Recognition showcases the extraordinary creativity and unique perspectives of First Peoples designers and artists from Melbourne. Featuring futuristic, androgynous jewellery; wearable art that addresses conflict, identity and dislocation; swimwear that merges traditional Aboriginal art with modern textile technology; and a collaboration featuring native Australian flowers, this exhibition draws inspiration from First Peoples’ experiences and culture. Complementing the exhibition is the premiere screening of Recognition, a First Peoples fashion film, shot in Hong Kong by award-winning director Helen Clemens.
