This stunning exhibition presents the innovation in art practice by artists not constrained by the conventionalities of the Western tradition of painting.
Indigenous women artists have come into their own starting with the groundbreaking work of the late, great Emily Kame Kngwarraye in the early 1990s. They have created their own dynamic visual language informed by their connection to country and culture and have forged a powerful and distinctive voice.
Featuring the work of artists such as Mantua Nangala, NoŊgirrŊa Marawili, Makinti Napanangka, Naata Nungurrayi, and Dhambit Munuŋgurr, the exhibition comprehensively captures this artistic zeitgeist.
The work in this exhibition is on loan from the Hassall Milson Collection Warrang/Sydney with curatorial assistance from Robert Hirschmann.
