Ngarrindjeri Culture Hub exhibition and site launchMay 2017

Inaugural Ngarrindjeri Culture Hub Exhibition June 2 to July 16, 2017

Ngarrindjeri elder Major Sumner and the Tal Kin Jeri dancers will launch the Ngarrindjeri Yunnan Yarluwar Ruwe - Ngarrindjeri Speaking For Sea-Countryexhibition with a Welcome to Country ceremony, on Sunday, June 4th, 2017 at 2.30pm, at the Murray Bridge Regional Gallery.

Open from June 2 to July 16, 2017, the exhibition forms part of the Ngarrindjeri Culture Hub initiative, a community arts partnership between Ngarrindjeri and Change Media, to put Ngarrindjeri arts and culture proudly on the map.

‘Ngarrindjeri Yunnan Yarluwar Ruwe - Ngarrindjeri Speaking For Sea-Country’ connects works from emerging and established Ngarrindjeri artists, across cultural practices and modern art forms, including paintings, carvings, pottery, woven sculptures, silk prints and digital works.

The group show will feature Moogy’s Yuki, the first Ngarrindjeri bark canoe made on Ngarrindjeri/ Boandik country in over 150 years, a large woven sculpture of Kondoli the Whale, and the first showing of exciting new work by celebrated artist Damien Shen and upcoming painter Cedric Varcoe.

The show will also include the Ngarrindjeri Culture Hub website launch and premiere of the second season of the mini-series ‘Everything is Connected’, co-created with award-winning SA film maker Johanis Lyons-Reid. Season One screens on ABC iView and won the prestigious International Melbourne WebFest award for Best Australian Factual Miniseries 2016 and was shortlisted as finalist at the South Australian Screen Awards 2016.

Exhibiting Artists in the 2017 exhibition:

Ellen Trevorrow and Ngarrindjeri weaversMajor Sumner, Jack Stengle, Bluey Roberts,  Betty Sumner,  Lyn Lovegrove Niemz, Damien Shen, Cedric Varcoe, and Change Media in collaboration with the Ngarrindjeri Media team.

The exhibition has been co-curated by Jen Lyons-Reid and Carl Kuddell, Ngarrindjeri elders Ellen Trevorrow and Major Sumner, and the participating Ngarrindjeri artists.

Looking forward to see you there. Nukkan!
