MoB Makers: Collaborative Collage with Tony Albert

MoB Makers: Collaborative Collage with Tony Albert

Create a unique collage using up-cycled materials in collaboration with internationally renowned artist Tony Albert.

Inspired by Tony Albert’s incredible new series, Conversations with Margaret Preston, this activity will introduce you to the concept of cultural appropriation and its significance to Tony’s practice and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art and culture. ‘Appropriation’ in art and art history refers to the intentional copying of images that have been used in another artists’ work with little transformation from the original. Artists often appropriate images and objects in their work to create new meanings, raise questions and express different perspectives.

Learn more about ‘appropriation’ and follow the steps to create your very own Collaborative Collage with Tony in the video below.  We recommend downloading the activity to complement your creative process.

This activity is part of Brisbane City Council’s Indigenous Art Program: HYPERLOCAL (1 May – 31 July 2021), curated by Blaklash Creative and supported by Museum of Brisbane.
