Curator: Hetti Perkins
This event took place at Tarrawarra Museum Of Art, Healesville, Victoria
The exhibition Earth and Sky curated by Hetti Perkins, features a selection of bark paintings by John Mawurndjul and Gulumbu Yunupingu, two of the most outstanding Australian artists of our time. In bringing the work of these two artists together, the exhibition offers a panoptic view of ‘country’ from an Indigenous perspective. Both artists engage with and represent the natural world in a highly sophisticated and conceptual aesthetic form. Their work distils the spiritual nature of this engagement in work that resonates with a power that is both ceremonial and celebratory
Part of ART+CLIMATE=CHANGE 2015 11 April–17 May 2015, a Melbourne-wide Festival of art exhibitions, forums and talks seeking to harness the creative power of the Arts to inform, engage and inspire action on climate change.
