This winter, Blak Design Matters will bring together works by Indigenous designers from across Australia at Federation Square’s not-for-profit Koorie Heritage Trust.

In the first exhibition of its kind, curator and architect Jefa Greenaway aims to highlight the diversity and strength of modern, Aboriginal-led design. To do so, Blak Design Matters has collected works by an exciting group of contemporary Indigenous designers and artists.

The list includes Marcus Lee Designs, responsible for redesigning the guernsey for the 2013 all-Indigenous AFL International Rules game, and jewellery designers Grace Lillian Lee and Haus of Dizzy. On the fashion front, there's Lyn-Al Young’s delicate hand-painted and natural-dyed symbolic garments and Arki The Label by Arki Barton. Balarinji Designs, Galimbaa Designs, and Injalak Arts are also among the featured designers, whose works traverse interior, product, graphic and landscape design, architecture, town planning and more.
