Join us for the opening event of our new exhibitions. Three Echoes: Western Desert Art will be opened by curator, writer, artist and activist, Djon Mundine OAM FAHA. Katy B. Plummer: We Believe You Babcia will be opened by Luke Létourneau, Curatorial and Collections Lead, Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre.

Three Echoes – Western Desert Art showcases works by 57 acclaimed artists heralding from Ikuntji (Haasts Bluff), Papunya and Utopia Aboriginal communities in the western desert regions of the Northern Territory, Australia. Artworks in this touring exhibition have been drawn from the private collection of Andrew Arnott and Karin Schack, and reflect the significant artistic developments and moments in time that contributed to the meteoric rise of the Western Desert Art movement.

Katy B. Plummer: We Believe You Babcia is a multimedia art installation about storytelling, Polish grandmothers, intergenerational relationships, and the often-untraced creative lineage of familial storytelling. The work is based on a thrilling ghost story, told to the artist’s children by their grandmother Iwona about the time she encountered a strange apparition: a group of ghostly actors, dressed in historical costumes, silently occupying a flooded stage.
