Defying Empire

Reko Rennie



"Defying Empire: 3rd National Indigenous Art Triennial brings the works of 30 contemporary Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists from across the country into the national spotlight."

Defying Empire was an historic exhibition of Australian Indigenous artists at the National Gallery of Australia. I was commissioned to compose the music to numerous of the mini-documentaries about the artists that displayed in the installation, working with Australian director & cinematographer Tom Broadhurst.

“We defy: By existing; By determining our identity; By asserting our histories; our culture; our language; By telling our stories, our way; By being one of the oldest continuous living cultures in the world."

Tina Baum, NGA Curator of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art
