"Daniel Boyd is a Kudjla/Gangalu man from far north Queensland. He left Cairns to study at the Canberra School of Art
and now resides in Sydney. Boyd’s work reinterprets Eurocentric perspectives on Australian history using
photographs, art-historical references and his own personal and cultural history. More recent work employs veils of
transparent dots to explore effects of time and memory on the interpretation of history and objects as partial and
incomplete. Boyd was included in the 7th AsiaPacific Triennial, QAGOMA in 2012 and Culture warriors: National
Indigenous Art Triennial, NGA in 2007. In 2014 he was awarded the $80,000 Bulgari Art Prize administered by
AGNSW and was included in the 2015 56th Venice Biennale exhibition All the world’s futures curated by Okwui." - Australian War Memorial
