Sāmoan-Australian artist Chantal Fraser’s feminist anti-colonial art practice has challenged Euro–American art histories that have been spread across the globe.

Exploring ritual, adornment and gestures of exchange, her works make use of a vast array of artistic, musical and spiritual sources, from global pop culture to folk and customary practices.

Chantal Fraser: The Ascended was developed by Griffith University Art Museum and supported by Arts Queensland, Creative Australia, and NorthSite Contemporary Arts.
