Brisbane indigenous artist Vernon Ah Kee has been selected as one of four Australian artists to exhibit at the 53rd Venice Biennale of Art in 2009 as a part of 'Once Removed', a show which represents Australia's selection at this prestigious world stage. The Venice Biennale is acknowledged as the most significant and important showcase event in the international contemporary visual arts community. The chance to exhibit at this prominent event is a career and life changing experience for any artist. Vernon Ah Kee's work challenges past and current injustices to aboriginal people and delves into beach culture and race issues surrounding the 2005 Cronulla riots. This 27 minute documentary follows Vernon as he prepares and travels to Venice. How will his work be received by the rest of the world?
