Curator Ellie Buttrose and artist Archie Moore: Venice Biennale

Archie Moore and Ellie Buttrose are the artist and curator commissioned by the Australia Council for the Arts to exhibit at the Australia Pavilion for the 60th International Art Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia.

Drawing upon 25 years of practice, Archie Moore (Kamilaroi/Bigambul) is uniquely placed to confront Australia’s past and evocatively assert Indigenous sovereignty on a worldwide scale at the Venice Biennale. Exhibiting at the Venice Biennale provides a timely and critical opportunity for Archie’s practice, offering an artistic outcome that will emotionally connect international audiences with the imperative act of truth-telling.

The Australia Council for the Arts is the commissioner for Australia’s National Participation at the Venice Biennale 2024 and the producer of the Australia at the Venice Biennale project.
