I'm reading @r.j.presley's article in the latest @artmonthly magazine. His series 'Blood Money', which is a set of Australian bank notes that feature Aboriginal historical figures, is excellent. There are so many layers of meaning to it, I first wrote about this series in a decolonisation article I wrote last year (link in bio). Bank notes, memorials, stamps, these are all artifacts where Australia expresses what is valued and what is not, what is to be remembered and what is to be omitted. Ryan presents Aboriginal resistance fighters like Jandamarra and Fanny Balbuk as such crucially important figures of Australian culture that they feature on our currency. The title 'Blood Money' also points toward the unethical transfer of wealth from Aboriginal communities to the Australian government via land theft. These paintings reveal the stuff of nation-making, of how we signal significance and value. The article says that you could 'exchange' AUD for BMD (Blood Money Dollars) at the exhibition, with proceeds going toward community organisations. I love this series so much, hopefully I can donate AUD and get a set of bank notes to me in Perfff 💸🤑💸 #bloodmoney #ryanpresley #alwayswasalwayswillbe

The dynamic visionary panelists included 2018 TIFF’s People’s Choice Award winning filmmaker @ the Top Ten Canadian Film Festival Charles Officer, provocative & influential performance/video artist Andrea Fraser and 2018 Juno nominated Irish/Cree/Dené/Métis singer Iskwé.
