Indigenous Australian Protest Art

Indigenous Australian Protest Art

We Can Be Heroes is a photographic series by Indigenous artist Tony Albert. It was awarded the National Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islander Art Award for 2014. The artist “made the work after Sydney police shot two Aboriginal teenagers who drove into a Kings Cross footpath in April 2012.” He says:

“We are kind of walking targets in society, whether that be through police violence or brutality, or being followed around in shops.”
