Archie Moore

Born in Toowoomba, Queensland, Archie Moore explores key signifiers of identity, intercultural communication, and racism through his conceptual and research-based works that portray his personal and national history. With language a central element in Moore’s practice, in “kith and kin,” the artist traces his family’s Kamilaroi/Bigambul lineage that dates back more than 65,000 years. Curated by Ellie Buttrose, “kith and kin” explores the legacies of colonialization and the impacts that an incarceration epidemic has had on familial connections across Indigenous communities and marks the 25th anniversary of Australia’s presence in the Venice Biennale.
