2018 QAGOMA Foundation Appeal

Michael Nelson Jagamara and Imants Tillers
Metafisica Australe 2017

The 2018 QAGOMA Foundation Appeal invites support for the acquisition of Metafisica Australe 2017. This exceptional 72-panel painting is the most recent work resulting from an extraordinary collaboration between two of the country’s leading artists, Michael Nelson Jagamara and Imants Tillers.

Since 2001, Warlpiri/Luritja artist Jagamara and Tillers have collaborated on 21 works. However, Metafisica Australe holds special meaning: it reflects on the origins of their collaboration, which developed following Tillers’s borrowing of elements of Jagamara’s landmark painting, Five Stories 1984.

With your support, the 2018 QAGOMA Foundation Appeal will bring this significant collaborative work into the Collection, where it will find a perfect home within the Queensland Art Gallery’s reimagined Australian Collection display.

METAFISICA AUSTRALE 2017 IS THE NEXT CHAPTER IN THE LONG-TERM COLLABORATION BETWEEN AUSTRALIAN ARTISTS MICHAEL NELSON JAGAMARA AND IMANTS TILLERS. THE CONTINUING CONVERSATION HAS A DEEP RESONANCE WITH OUR REIMAGINED AUSTRALIAN COLLECTION DISPLAY, HIGHLIGHTING A UNIQUE EXCHANGE BETWEEN AN INDIGENOUS AND A NON-INDIGENOUS ARTIST.
