Mikala Dwyer’s idiosyncratic, personal spaces
“Mikala’s practice is predominantly installation-based, in which she creates spaces within the conventional architecture of the gallery, using materials that have a strong association with the body. Her interest in working within and against architecture is a reaction to the imperatives of ‘good design’ – Scandinavian modernism in particular. Her installations and sculptures are experimental and experiential architectures that play with the permeable and changeable nature of objects and our relationship with them. Her materials – plastic, fabric, plywood, plants and sound – are selected for their qualities of materiality or immateriality, and display an intentional lack of finish.” www.mca.com.au/artists-works/artists/mikala-dwyer/

Ayesha Green- New Zealand Artist
For Ngāti Kahungunu and Kai Tahu descendent Ayesha Green, being an artist has become an essential service she can provide for her whakapapa (ancestors). Based in Auckland, New Zealand, Ayesha’s cartoonesque painting practice seeks to engage with processes of reproduction and representation through the lens of cultural value systems.

She captures large complex histories, while also being incredibly personal.” www.aucklandartgallery.com/explore-art-and-

Celebrate the interconnected histories of First Nations peoples through the works of Daniel Boyd
Daniel Boyd: Treasure Island is the artist’s first major exhibition to be held in an Australian public institution. Featuring more than 80 works from across his nearly two-decade career, the exhibition unpacks the ways in which Boyd holds a lens to colonial history, explores multiplicity within narratives and interrogates blackness as a form of First Nations’ resistance.Working with an idiosyncratic painting technique that partially obscures the composition, Boyd refigures archival imagery, art historical references and his own family photographs, asking us to contend with histories that have been hidden from view. www.artgallery.nsw.gov.au/whats-on/exhibitions/daniel-boyd/
