To be opened by Djon Mundine, OAM curator of contemporary Indigenous art
Jason Wing will present an artist talk at 5pm on Friday 30 September.
Jason Wing is a young Aboriginal artist from the western Sydney suburb of Blacktown. Wing’s father is Chinese (Cantonese) and his mother is an Aboriginal woman from the Biripi people in the Upper Hunter region of New South Wales. Since graduating with a Bachelor of Fine Arts at Sydney’s College of Fine Arts in 1998, Wing has steadily emerged in the Sydney and national art scene as a versatile artist who explores issues of bi-cultural and Indigenous political identity, environmental awareness and spirituality with a street-wise flair (owing in part to his use of stencil printing) and strong commitment to community engagement.
Wing will be exhibiting at Tandanya for the first time following on from a 2010 OzAsia residency at the Adelaide Festival Centre.
