Event description

Description

In the 1990s, Anne Brody curated three international touring exhibitions of Aboriginal art for the Janet Holmes à Court Collection — Utopia-A Picture Story 88 batiks on silk [1990, Ireland and Europe]; Contemporary Aboriginal Art. A Selection [1990, USA and Australia]; and Stories. A Journey Around Big Things: Eleven Aboriginal Artists [1994, Europe]. All three exhibitions included paintings by Emily Kame Kngwarreye whose work is strongly represented in the Janet Holmes à Court Collection.

Recently, Darren Jorgensen of the School of Design, UWA co-edited Indigenous Archives: The Making and Unmaking of Aboriginal Art (UWAP, 2017), which he says aimed to 'deepen our knowledge of where the Aboriginal art movement came from.”

Join Anne Brody and Darren Jorgensen in conversation as they explore Emily Kame Kngwarreye’s beginnings as member of the Utopia Women’s Batik Group, and her subsequent rise to prominence as an internationally celebrated painter.
