Yagu Gurlbarl Event Dates18 Jan - 24 Feb

Yagu Gurlbarl

presented by Art on the Move ADD TO FAVOURITES

Yagu Gurlbarl (Big Secret) artist Julie Dowling explores the theme of the slavery of First Nations peoples both in past centuries and in current Australian society.

This is a unique opportunity for the regions to present a solo exhibition featuring a significant Western Australian artist. A series of highly decorated figurative artworks are included that draw in and engage the viewer. Upon closer inspection, there is a strong political trajectory challenging the myth that First Nations peoples were/are lazy and a drain on society. The beauty presented in the works becomes a metaphor for the resilience and wisdom of First Nations peoples to overcome the narrow narrative that has sanitised colonisation.
