HERE I AM: Art by Great Women will be on show until 30 January 2021. It's a striking large-scale installation that comprises four exhibition cubes with a total of 16 artworks - two for each featured artist, on display at Darling Quarter's outdoor public art space, OPEN, which is accessible and FREE of charge to the general public 24/7.
It features the work of 8 contemporary Indigenous female artists from across Australia - Noni Cragg, Elizabeth Close, Jody Haines, Molly Hunt, Nici Cumpston, Kate Constantine, Bronwyn Bancroft, and Amala Groom, and showcases and celebrates their incredible talent through multidisciplinary mediums. This includes photography, illustration, and painting, and covers diverse styles such as street art, contemporary and traditional.
Presented by Darling Quarter and curated and produced by aMBUSH Gallery, this is part of an overarching national art project connected to the National Gallery of Australia's upcoming blockbuster Know My Name. This art exhibition is being held in both Sydney and Canberra over the summer of 2020/21. Find Canberra details here.
Featuring Indigenous female artists, it's perfection, and a stroke of genius that it coincides with NAIDOC Week and its theme for 2020, Always Was, Always Will Be. It recognises that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people were Australia's first explorers, first navigators, first engineers, first farmers, first botanists, first scientists, first diplomats, first astronomers and first artists.
