Wagga Wagga Art Gallery acknowledges the Wiradjuri nation who are the traditional custodians of the lands on which the gallery stands.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are advised that this exhibition contains images and footage of people who have passed away.
Wagga Wagga Art Gallery is deeply honoured and excited to present the exhibition, Ngabindiyi dulmarra (measured pressure): Michael Riley and Lorraine Connelly-Northey. Both Michael Riley and Lorraine Connelly-Northey are visionary Wiradjuri/Waradgerie artists of national significance. This exhibition brings together new works and significant pieces from the artist’s oeuvre, demonstrating the range and creativity of these two Wiradjuri artists, one male and one female, one from the North and one from the South of Wiradjuri Country.
Through their varied mediums and techniques both artists depict Wiradjuri/Waradgerie identity, capturing the enduring sense of beauty amid decay that lies at its heart. Together, these artists help sculpt our understanding of what it means to be Wiradjuri today.
Please join us for the launch of Ngabindiyi dulmarra (measured pressure): Michael Riley and Lorraine Connelly-Northey at 11am on Saturday 10 November. This will be followed by a panel discussion with practitioners, curators and elders. Everyone is welcome to attend.
RSVP appreciated for catering purposes.
