Carriers of Culture

September 4, 2021 - October 2, 2021

Ghost Net Baskets by Maria Ware

Namiyal Bopirri, Lorrain Connelly Northey, Robyn Djunginy, Daisy Nadjungdanga, Maria Ware, Utopia Artists

Women have long been regarded as important carriers of tradition, history, and culture in their communities. This is particularly so in First Nations communities where women are able to use their artistic skills to produce items, that through the very nature of the methodology of their creation and use, support the preservation of knowledge, cultural practices, and community traditions.

Carriers of Culture focuses on the works of Australian First Nations female artists who have produced containers in a variety of mediums and styles. These items, drawn from both a private collection as well as those contemporaneously created for the exhibition, will include narbongs by Lorraine Connelly Northey, baskets by Daisy Nadjungdanga, ghost net baskets by Maria Ware, baskets by Namiyal Bopirri, woven bottles by Robyn Djunginy, and bowls and coolamons created by Central Desert artists.

Gallery Hours: Saturday: 12pm – 4pm & By Appointment
