Jus' Drawn : proppaNOW Collective
Jus’ Drawn is a touring exhibition of works on paper by eight of Australia’s most important urban Indigenous artists.
Known collectively as ‘Proppa NOW’ this Queensland-based group consists of urban Aboriginal artists who have already won individual acclaim, Richard Bell, Vernon Ah Kee, Gordon Hookey and Laurie Nilsen, as well as formidable emerging artists such as Jennifer Herd, Andrea Fisher, and Tony Albert. This group dispels the notion that indigenous art needs to be from a remote area to be ‘authentic’.
