Reko Rennie has been announced as the recipient of the second $70,000 Artbank + ACMI Commission for his proposed new video work 'What Do We Want'.

Shot on cinematic 4K, 'What Do We Want' will draw on 1970s Blaxploitation films and Rennie’s own martial arts practice to explore political, environmental and social questions through an Aboriginal Australian lens.

'What Do We Want' will be exhibited at ACMI in 2020.
