Painting the Town Blak | Richmond Town Hall
July 5, 2019 - October 25, 2019
Painting the Town Blak is a survey exhibition of Clinton Naina, curated by Kara Rees. Painting the Town Blak brings together works from the City of Yarra’s Art Collection, 2019 solo exhibition Passive Aggressive Power and previously unseen pieces in exhibition at the Richmond Town Hall Exhibition Space.
“Clinton Naina (formerly Nain) is a painter, dancer, performer and storyteller. Naina came to prominence in the late 1990s with a poignant series titled White King, Blak Queen, which used a combination of bleach and bitumen to explore the tainted path of colonisation. His unique combination of materials and potent imagery exposes the impact of British settlement and imposed religious order on his people from the Torres Strait Islands.” – Yarra City Arts
