ABORIGINAL YOUTH

Visiting Sydney, Australia as an artist in residence at Artspace, Donis created a poster campaign covering the streets of Sydney with an image of an Aboriginal male in a homoerotic embrace with a Crocodile Dundee-esque stockman.

Donis continually encountered groups of people arguing over the image, and the posters were defaced as well as stolen. This sparked a round table discussion with political leaders, Aboriginal elders, and members of the G.L.B.T.Q communities.
