Destiny Deacon is one of Australia’s boldest and most acclaimed contemporary artists. This tote has been designed in collaboration with Destiny Deacon and made exclusively for the NGV design store in celebration of DESTINY
, the artist’s first solo show in over 15 years and the largest retrospective of her work to date.
A descendant of the Kuku and Erub/Mer people from Far North Queensland and Torres Strait, Deacon is internationally known for a body of work depicting her darkly comic, idiosyncratic worldview. Offering a nuanced, thoughtful and, at times, intensely funny snapshot of contemporary Australian life, Deacon reminds us that ‘serious’ art can also have a sense of humour.
This lined tote bag is perfect for all your casual carrying needs and features an internal pocket to keep your essentials organised and close at hand. The printed section of the tote is made of digitally printed 100% polyester and the plain coloured lining is 80% polyester and 20% cotton. Designed and made exclusively for the NGV design store.
