At Hearth, we’ve starting planning for a very special summer exhibition, Far North, inspired by the diverse art practices of the art centres of Far North Queensland. The rainforests and waters, and their diverse species, inspire a rich repertoire of stories and traditions. The dilly-bag often features as a symbol of engagement with and appreciation for the wealth of resources offered by the natural world.
With thanks to the artists from the following art centres:
Bana Yirriji Art Centre Yarrabah Arts and Culture Pormpuraaw Arts and Culture Centre Girringun Art Centre
These art centres represent artists from the following tribal language groups: Kuku Yalanji, Gunggandji, Thaayorre, Bandjin, Djiru, Girramay, Gugu Badhun, Gulnay, Jirrbal, Nywaigi, Warrgamay and Warungnu.
And… thrilled that we may have arts writer extraordinaire, Claire Coleman, to launch this exhibition. Claire is the author of Terra Nullius and has written about art from the art centres of FNQ. She is about to launch her new book, Lies Damn Lies.
