Summary
Wiradjuri - Scottish artist Brook Andrew explores notions of identity perceptions of humanity in his exhibition 52 Portraits; one of the most important exhibitions of 2014; references 19th-century European treatment of Indigenous peoples as ethnographic curiosities; contrasts with the sacredness that Indigenous Australians place on the human body; the exhibition consists of 52 mixed-media portraits featuring images based on 19th-century postcards of unknown people from Africa, Argentina, Ivory Coast, Syria, Sudan, Japan, Australia, as well as a Wunderkammer-inspired centerpiece
