Kulin Generations presents portraits of five Elders from the Kulin Nations with one or more of their descendants. Taken on country, these images show an honest contemporary existence of Aboriginal people. The portraits are accompanied by recorded interviews considering what it is to be Aboriginal and the ways in which the Elders connect with younger generations. Featured Elders include N’arweet Carolyn Briggs, Uncle Talgium Edwards, Aunty Fay Carter and Aunty Marlene Gilson. The portraits will be presented as 3 metre tall artworks on the steps of Old Treasury Building.
