Friday, 21 June 2024 - 10:30 am to 11:30 am

NOTE: Please note the date of this event has been changed to the 21st of June at 10:30am to incorporate the talk from Three Echoes curator, Djon Mundine OAM FAHA.

Join us for a preview tour of our new exhibitions, Three Echoes: Western Desert Art and Katy B. Plummer: We Believe You Babcia.

Curated by celebrated curator, writer, artist and activist, Djon Mundine OAM FAHA, 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.
