Daniel Boyd: Treasure Island unpacks the ways Boyd holds a lens to colonial history, explores multiplicity within narratives, and interrogates blackness as a form of First Nations’ resistance. It provides a thoughtful and thought-provoking response to the current moment where critical dialogues on ideas of community, connectivity and cultural repatriation carry particular urgency.
With new writing by the exhibition curators and commissioned First Nations authors, the book offers both critical insight into Daniel Boyd’s practice as well as creative and experimental responses to his work.
Boyd has exhibited widely in Australia and recognised internationally with his Up in smoke tour exhibition at the Natural History Museum, London in 2011 (following his artist-in-residence there); inclusion in the 56th Venice
Biennale All The World’s Futures exhibition in 2015; and solo exhibition Treasure Island at the Kukje Gallery, Seoul, Korea in 2021.
Daniel Boyd: Treasure Island is published in conjunction with the artist’s first major exhibition to be held in an Australian public institution. The book will feature over 100 works from across his nearly two-decade career and includes new work and commissioned spatial interventions.
