Opening Speaker and artist talk Helen Johnson
Curated by Helen Johnson with local Aboriginal artists from the Fleurieu Peninsula, Ngarrindjeri and Ramindjeri peoples and artists of the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara Lands of South Australia and the Central Desert.
The theme of Tjukurpa is fundamental to Aboriginal culture. Stories tie people to land, place and ancestors, they provide a way of passing on knowledge of lore, culture, ancestry, land, totemic sites, hunting and gathering, flora and fauna.
Contemporary Indigenous artists will exhibit new work that is both vibrant and unique and visually breathtaking. A rare chance to learn something of Aboriginal culture through this vital art form. Including original paintings, weaving and ceramics.
