Melbourne-based settler Australian artist Kate Golding examines colonisation and representation of people and place through lens-based and alternative photographic processes. Awarded an ArtStart Grant from the Australia Council for the Arts, Golding was the winner of a Linden Postcard Prize, and a CCP Salon Best Work by a CCP Member Prize. Her work features in Melbourne Museum’s permanent exhibition First Peoples, and her PHOTO 2021 commission was supported by a City of Melbourne Arts Grant. Her photobook, Within You Without You was published in 2015. Golding acknowledges the Wurundjeri people on whose land she lives and works. She offers respect to elders past, present and future, extending this respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, acknowledging that sovereignty has never been ceded.

PHOTO Australia respectfully acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands upon which we work and live, and the rich and diverse Indigenous cultures across what is now called Australia. For over 60,000 years, Indigenous arts and culture have thrived on this sacred land, and we honour Elders and cultural leaders past and present. This was, and always will be, Aboriginal land.
