Three First Nations artists share their personal processes of decolonising mind and body, at The Bearded Tit's powerful exhibition Green On Red.

Running until August 18, the multidisciplinary show coincides with NAIDOC Week celebrations, embracing its 2018 theme 'Because of her, we can!' as it pulls together the work of three uncompromising females.

Amala Groom's video piece The Invisibility of Blackness explores the disappearance of cultural identity, while her Totes Appropes bags are a not-so-subtle dig at Chanel's $1930 limited edition luxury boomerang, highlighting the issue of cultural appropriation.

You'll also catch a thought-provoking work by Southern Arrernte, Kaytetye and Anmatyerre artist Carmen Glynn-Braun, featuring variously coloured paint 'skins' hung in rows — a reference to the lengths fair-skinned First Nations people are forced to go to prove their 'Aboriginality'.

Yamatji Wajarri woman Nicole Monks offers visitors a peek through her Invisible mirror, while a collaboration between Nicole Monks & Amala Groom, titled FAIRER 2018, pays homage to the 'Boycott '88' bicentennial protests 30 years on.
