Some artists just have to speak. Some stories just need to be told.
Plain Speak launches a new annual series at AGWA that presents compelling personal stories told through art. The inaugural show puts Indigenous artists in the spotlight – with 50 powerfully personal video, painting, photography, sculpture and textile works. Whether it’s a grand tale or something more intimate, these stories and histories will resonate.
