Destiny Deacon is one of Australia’s boldest and most acclaimed contemporary artists. This t-shirt has been designed 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.
