This exhibition celebrates a unique collaboration between two groups of remote Indigenous women textile artists. Earlier this year, the Bundjalung Casino Wake Up Time Group and the Kunwinjku women artists from Injalak Arts & Crafts, in Oenpelli, Arhnem land, participated in a cross cultural exchange, sharing culture, weaving, dying and printing techniques.
This exhibition showcases the textiles work of both groups of artists as well as some collaborative pieces created during the project ‘working together’. Stunning hand printed and naturally dyed lengths of silk, linen and cotton will be displayed, along side intractly woven fibre pieces, created from natural local materials and dyed in the respective natural dyes from each region.
To be opened by Peter Wood (Executive Director, Arts Northern Rivers) with opening address by project facilitators Jude White and Kylie Caldwell.
Launch Event: Thursday 29 June 2017 5:30pm - 7:30pm
