Red Runners: The new objectification of Native art and identity

Curated in 2010 by Jason Jenkins and Luke Parnell. Produced by Thunderbird the Aboriginal arts and culture brand of Miziwe Biik Development Corporation (MBDC).

The curators challenged fellow Aboriginal artists to re-imagine the most common of objects – a pair of plain white running shoes. The interpretations vary widely but their common root is the Aboriginal viewpoint.
