This month, 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.
