Every Wednesday from 12.30-1 pm. Please meet at the foyer reception desk. Groups welcome

All life depends on access to water. RMIT Gallery’s timely summer exhibition water + wisdom Australia India (1 December 2017 – 10 March 2018) creatively explores both customary knowledge and contemporary issues surrounding water through the work of Aboriginal and Indian artists.

Once connected via the super continent of Gondwana, Australia and India share similarities of high rainfall variability, long established practises of customary water management and competing demands for water from different sectors.

Aboriginal artists: Sandra Aitken, Badger Bates, Paddy Bedford, Vicki Couzens, Hannah Donnelly, Connie Hart, Wanyubi Marika, Jennifer Mullett, Lorna Fencer Napurrula, Glenda Nicholls, Mandy Nicholson, Shorty Lungkata Tjungurrayi, Judy Watson, Liyawaday Wirrpanda.

Indian artists: Ravi Agarwal, Lado Bai, Atul Bhalla, Vibha Galhotra, Bhavani G S, Djambawa Marawili, Parthiv Shah, Jangarh Singh Shyam, Cop Shiva, K.R. Sunil, Asim Waqif.
