While locality falls Country endures: being and belonging in Aboriginal art

Saturday 1 October 


Artist, curator and academic Garry Jones contemplates the meaning of Country for Aboriginal Australians as expressed in contemporary art practices, and as seen in Country. It will consider the ways in which Aboriginal concepts of Country contrast​ with Western concepts, and why contemporary Aboriginal art has been critical in advancing mainstream understanding of the enduring relations Aboriginal people have with the land.  Free, all welcome.
