Abstract

This article explores how some of the key discourses of the contemporary art museum may be apprehended and reframed from the standpoint of Indigenous contemporary art. Looking at Tate from inside Embassy, an installation work created in 2013 by Australian Aboriginal artist Richard Bell, the paper asks how we might better understand the complicity of concepts such as participation or networks within broader colonial museologies, and what happens to both our museological practices and our subjectivity as visitors if we reposition the museum in this way.
