Keemon Williams (b.1999) is a queer Meanjin (Brisbane) based artist of Koa, Kuku Yalanji and Meriam Mir descent. He utilizes an array of mediums old and new to expand his relationships with location, personal histories and cultural plasticity to forge a sense of belonging within all parts of the self. Through Installation, photography, ceramics, new media and virtual technologies, he seeks to challenge notions of Queerness, Indigeneity and Australian identity.
