The Koorie Heritage Trust is proud to present a range of exclusive merchandise based on artworks by the late Josh Muir (Gunditimara, Yorta Yorta and Barkindji), currently showing in JXSH MVIR: Forever I Live at the Koorie Heritage Trust, Birrarung Building, Fed Square (9 March – 14 July 2024).

JXSH MVIR: Forever I Live is the Koorie Heritage Trust's second solo exhibition of Josh Muir's work, and the first since his passing in 2022.

Featuring works from lenders and collectors across Australia, the exhibition showcases Josh's short but prolific artistic career during which he explored Country, culture, identity, colonisation, mental health, addiction, loss and grief.

We are also incredibly delighted and privileged to have worked with Shanaya Sheridan, Josh's partner, and Justine Berg, Josh's mother, as guest curators for the exhibition.

 

About the Artwork:

"Despite the impact of both past and current government policies which have [had], and continue to have, negative impacts on Aboriginal people, including: removal from land; separation of families; removal of children (past and present practices); denial of language, culture, traditional food sources; lower educational outcomes; higher incarceration rates for adults and youth.

Despite all this, Aboriginal people remain strong and determined to have a bright future, demonstrated by the central figure – a strong Aboriginal person flying the Aboriginal flag in a forward moving motion. The crosses represent both the deaths of numerous Aboriginal people and the role of religious orders in the implementation of government policies. The black and white stripes represent a willingness from both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people to work together in the spirit of reconciliation.”

– Josh Muir, 2015.

SOS Blak Australia was exhibited in the 3rd Koorie Art Show at Koorie Heritage Trust in 2015.
