  • Christian Thompson art image

A world premiere, Christian Thompson will exhibit works from his brand new photographic series as well as his new video work Refuge, a collaboration with James Young (formerly of Nico) that explores the innate lyricism of his paternal language.

Christian Thompson is an internationally acclaimed, London-based contemporary artist. His work is primarily focused on the performative exploration of plural identities; working in mediums including photography, video, sculpture, performance and sound. In 2010, Thompson made history by becoming the first Aboriginal Australian to be admitted to the University of Oxford in its 900-year history. This exhibition will be Thompson’s first since completing his doctoral studies.
