The launch of Mirrung (means belonging in Dharug, the Sydney language) celebrates the diversity of all things art, across a range of creative fields. This is an exhibition of the collaborative work of acclaimed Indigenous artists, brother and sister duo David (background in graphic design and street art) and Noni Cragg (classically trained painter). You're invited to Opening Night hosted by aMBUSH Gallery on Wednesday 4 March 2020 from 6pm to 8pm at Cultural Centre Kambri, ANU Building 153, L2, Action. This FREE event will be serving up complimentary drinks from Capital Brewing and music from local DJ Ashley Feraude.

Following Opening Night, on Friday 6 March 2020 from 4.30-5.30pm, the Gallery will be hosting an Artist Talk event, followed by Q&A with the artists. This is also a FREE event, as is the Exhibition that runs daily from 10am to 6pm weekdays and 12pm-5pm on weekends until Sunday 12 April 2020. ALL ARTWORKS ARE FOR SALE.

Noni and David have been painting and drawing together since they were children. Sydney-based and inspired by their First Nations, Scottish and Irish background, between Noni's portraiture and David's landscape and florals, they use their art to explore notions of belonging and community as well as representation and intersectionality. Beneath the surface of art lays conversations of diversity, narratives and connection to country. This exhibition is but a first in a series of joint projects lined up for this year.

This rainbow-hued collection of over a dozen breathtaking collaborative portraits is their largest show to date. It features portraits of people whom they admire because of their achievements in their respective fields, and are connected in some way to the Arts. The subjects chosen are by design to explore Australia's multiculturalism. Featured are artists, poets, podcasters, musicians, models, designers and more, hailing from backgrounds as varied as Indigenous Australian, African, Japanese, German, Turkish, Nigerian and Zimbabwean. Don't miss Opening Night, or the chance to speak to the artists.
