Show Me the Way to Go Home

11.00AM Wed 22 Apr 2020
QAGOMA | Lecture theatre, GOMA Restaurant | Ticketed

Delve deeper into QAGOMA exhibitions and displays at our monthly lecture or tour, and then catch up with friends over lunch at the hatted GOMA Restaurant.

Join Katina Davidson (Acting Curator, Indigenous Australian Art) for an overview of ‘Mavis Ngallametta: Show Me the Way to Go Home’. Mrs Ngallametta (1944–2019) made a profound contribution to arts and culture nationally and particularly in Queensland, her home state. An elder of the Putch clan and a cultural leader of the Wik and Kugu people of Aurukun, Mrs Ngallametta was one of the most highly regarded senior community-based artists in Australia. The exhibition will survey a decade of her intricate and animated paintings, bringing together major works from her Pamp/Swamp, Kendall River, Wutan, Ikalath, Yalgamunken, intertidal estuary and powerful bushfire series for the first time. This will be a powerful aesthetic experience and great insight into life on Mavis Ngallametta’s country.

$50 Members / $60 Members' guests / Includes a glass of wine, a two-course lunch of main and dessert, followed by tea or coffee at the GOMA Restaurant / Book online or call 07 3840 7278
