Event Details

Wednesday 19 May
Cell Block Theatre 


Working across painting, photography, installation, collage and temporary and permanent public art, Rolande Souliere is of Anishinaabe First Nation heritage from Turtle Island (North America) and is living in Sydney, Australia. Her transnational position has enabled her to experience, engage and maintain long term relationships in various Indigenous domestic and international spheres. As such, Souliere’s practice is very much informed from her Indigenous upbringing and how Indigeneity is understood across several socio-political, cultural and aesthetic platforms. In this talk, Souliere will discuss common threads in her artworks that pertain to First Nation mythology, language and borders, boundaries and the marking of space.

Souliere’s art practice was established after she relocated to Australia in the late 1990s. She is a member of Michipicoten First Nation and an Australian citizen with a PhD, MVA, BVA (Honors) from Sydney College of the Arts, The University of Sydney Recent exhibitions include 52 Artists 52 Actions, Artspace, Sydney, States of Collapse, Dunlop Art Gallery, Regina, Canada, Frequent Stopping, The Contemporary Art Gallery, Vancouver, Canada and an upcoming exhibition at Schmick Contemporary, Sydney, Australia.
