UnMonumental is a collaborative project by artists James Tylor and Matt Chun. We post stories from the history of Australia Aboriginal Land, illustrated with original drawings.

We welcome you to subscribe to UnMonumental on Substack for $0. The vast majority of our work will always be posted publicly for free.

A special thanks to those who are able to support our work through a $5 monthly subscription.

We undertake community consultation for our posts whenever necessary, and we pay all consultants for their time. A paid subscription will assist us to maintaining this practice and keep the project sustainable.

To date, UnMonumental has created work for Richard Bell’s Tent Embassy, Art Gallery of South Australia, The Sydney Opera House, Sydney Living Museums, Cordite Magazine and Bargoona Nganjin North Fitzroy Library.

We remain creatively and editorially independent.

Thanks for joining us!

James & Matt.
