Event: -
Curated by Hannah Presley, A Lightness of Spirit is the Measure of Happiness celebrates the significance of family, community and humour in contemporary Aboriginal life. This major exhibition will feature 10 new commissions by artists from south-east Australia and beyond, in an exploration of everyday life and experiences of Aboriginal people today. Country music icons, queer identity, pop-culture and community leadership are referenced, as well as the legacy of ancestors and the importance of coming together to strengthen identity and connection.

A Lightness of Spirit is the Measure of Happiness is the inaugural exhibition for Yalingwa, a Victorian Government initiative. Yalingwa is a partnership between Creative Victoria, ACCA and TarraWarra Museum of Art, designed to support the development of outstanding contemporary Indigenous art and curatorial practice. It includes three new curatorial positions and three major exhibitions alternating between ACCA and TarraWarra, focused on new commissions by contemporary Indigenous artists.
