Island Made showcases functional objects handmade by Quandamooka and non-Indigenous artists and makers living on Southern Moreton Bay, Coochiemudlo and North Stradbroke Islands. Comprising exceptional objects made for ordinary use, the exhibition includes ceramics, woven baskets, bags, silverware and crab pots. Stories of makers and their motivations form a significant part of the exhibition, as do the photographic portraits of the makers themselves. Island Made encourages appreciation of the skills, knowledge, resourcefulness and diversity of our island communities, increasing community connection with place and improving an understanding and appreciation of Quandamooka country.
Curated by Tricia Dobson and Maria Cleary.
This exhibition is supported by the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland.
