Gallery of Aboriginal Art
Generations II - Exhibiting Saturday 14th September - Tuesday 12th November
Generations II, a collection of works from the iconic Possum Family – Clifford Possum Tjapaltjarri, Gabriella Possum Nungurrayi, Michelle Possum Nungurrayi, Lionel Possum Tjungurrayi and extended family, and is the second exhibition of its type. The first Generations was curated by Adam Knight’s Aranda Art Gallery in Melbourne in 2009, and was the first and only exhibition where Clifford’s artistic family members were represented together. Generations II, some 10 years later includes four generations of Clifford’s family, including some who have more recently taken up the brush.
The exhibition allows visitors to observe the artistic similarities and subtle differences between generations. Importantly this exhibition is an exceptional opportunity to view and gain an understanding of the importance of these artworks and how stories and knowledge are passed on through art works, stories, songs and dancing to future generations to educate and preserve our Indigenous culture.
Exhibiting Saturday 14th September – Tuesday 12th November.
Gallery open Friday, Saturday and Sunday, 10am – 4pm.
Open weekdays by appointment only.
