Artist Call Out | Ngarakal Githabal Dialect Exhibition01.04.2016
Applications are now open to be part of the Ngarakal Githabal Dialect Exhibition to be held at Lismore City Hall in May. For this exhibition artists are asked to explore Bootheram Lore which uses landscape and the sky as a reference for this creation lore. Arts Northern Rivers are interested in hearing from all Indigenous artists living in their region who work across any medium.
Works are to be delivered by 6 May.
The exhibition is the culmination of The Bundjalung Project, developed by Arts Northern Rivers and funded through the Federal Government’s Ministry for the Arts Indigenous Visual Arts Industry Support program.
The 3-year project is about rediscovering Aboriginal mark-making traditions; reconnecting Bundjalung Aboriginal artists and their communities with their heritage; exploring early Bundjalung Art from within the region; and to assist local Indigenous artists to develop a unique style for our region through the incorporation of ancient Bundjalung Nation markings and motifs into contemporary indigenous works.
