October 1, 2016 | Posted by Blak Dot Gallery

Blak Dot Gallery’s ‘Fifty Shades of Blak’, an exhibition exploring the voices of First Nations women from across Australia and the world, won the ‘Best Visual Arts’ category for the 2016 Melbourne Fringe Festival.

The exhibition was an inter-cultural exchange between Australian and global First Nations women, highlighting the voices of fifty visual and performing female artists, each addressing issues of stereotyping, colour coding, racism, identity and societal perceptions of First Nations women and women of colour.
