Destiny Deacon is one of Australia’s boldest and most acclaimed contemporary artists.

November 2020 to February 2021, the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) held the largest retrospective of her work to date, DESTINY, featuring more than 100 multi-disciplinary works made over a 30-year period. NGV and RISING are giving viewers an opportunity online to view one of her seminal works, Home Video.

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.
