Since 2008, Dr Angus Cameron has acted as ‘spokesperson’ or ‘emissary’ for the Goldin+Senneby artwork Headless wherever it has been exhibited, performed or otherwise displayed around the world. We are excited that Cameron will perform this ongoing role in person for Goldin+Senneby’s Brisbane exhibition, Standard Length of a Miracle (The Bootleg). Prominent Native Title advocate, Aboriginal elder, and academic Dr Mary Graham will join Cameron in a conversation that pairs their broad-ranging expertise on issues and conceptions of land. The conversation is moderated by Amaara Raheem.

Free and open to everyone. RSVP here.

  • Dr Angus Cameron

As ‘spokesperson’ for Headless over the past 10 years, Cameron has addressed diverse audiences all over the world on the intricate connections between finance, art, sovereignty, decapitation, and monkeys.
