Ngargang Girri Kalat Mimini - Mother Aunty Sister Daughter 11 August - 13 October
This is the first collective exhibition by members of Ngardang Girri Kalat Mimini which is a network of Victorian Indigenous women artists, with a particular focus on those regionally based.
Over 20 artists from around Victoria are included in the exhibition. Visitors will have the opportunity to see the work of established artists such as Janet Bromley, Yorta Yorta woman and winner of the 2018 Koorie Heritage Trust Art Show winner and Lorraine Connelly Northey, a Waradgerie woman whose sculptural works are in public art collections throughout Australia. The exhibition also includes the work of emerging artists including artists from the Shepparton TAFE.
There is a huge diversity of mediums and techniques from weaving, to painting and installation in this exhibition which, exhibition curator and exhibiting artist, Georgia MacGuire explains will “celebrate the uniqueness of south-eastern Australian Indigenous art and culture by women” while at the same time “challenge stereotypes of what Aboriginal art looks like.”
