Museums & Galleries of NSW | VOID

Published on Wednesday, 16 September 2020 at 9:26:00 AM

The void is a multifaceted concept, not simply of presence and absence, but a place that exists between distinct worldviews, is occupied by meaning and is imbued with personal, historical and ancestral significance. The artists presented in this exhibition do not simply define the void as denoting a lack, but rather they utilise form to represent the formless.
Void brings together contemporary Aboriginal artistic practice from across the country. Curated by Emily McDaniel, the exhibition
features existing works across the mediums of drawing, painting, sculpture, ceramics, textiles, video and photography by artists including Pepai Jangala Carroll, Jonathan Jones, Mabel Juli, John Mawurndjul AM, Hayley Millar - Baker, Mick Namarari Tjapaltjarri, Rusty Peters, Doreen Reid Nakamarra, Andy Snelgar, Dr. Thancoupie Gloria Fletcher AO, Freddie Timms, James Tylor, Jennifer Wurrkidj, and Josephine Wurrkidj. An exhibition curated by Emily McDaniel, in conjunction with UTS Art and Bathurst Regional Art Gallery, presented nationally by Museums & Galleries of NSW. This project has been assisted by the Australian Government’s Visions of Australia program.
GRAG’s opening commences at 6pm on Friday 21 August and RSVP is essential due to COVID-19 restrictions. Secure your spot by clicking here.
