Contemporary Indigenous Textiles from Australia's Tropic Zone
10:00am Monday 5th July 2021
this event to a friend
5 June - 4 September
This landmark exhibition, the first of its kind in Australia, presents exciting new hand-printed Indigenous textiles from remote communities across far north Australia. Community-led Aboriginal Art Centres in the Northern Territory first explored screen-printed textiles as a new creative medium in the 1960s. Today, these textiles are a nationally and internationally acclaimed form of cultural expression that provides sustainable economic, cultural, and social benefits to Indigenous artists, art centres and their communities.
Indigenous textile screen-printing is a dynamic art form that transcends the realm of simple utilitarianism. Rather, it inhabits a previously undefined space between the commonplace and the sacred. As a creative medium it brings together elements of art, design, fashion and craft, resulting in a unique art form that is accessible, adaptive and reproducible.
