Ngarrindjeri Speaking for SeaCountry

During a series of meetings and workshops over the last year, the group of co-curators (Ngarrindjeri elders Ellen Trevorrow and Major Sumner, Change Media's artistic director Jen Lyons-Reid and creative producer Carl Kuddell, supported by Murray Bridge Regional Gallery director Melinda Rankin) have set the curatorial vision for the first Ngarrindjeri Culture Hub exhibition, planned for June-July 2017.

The show, titled 'Ngarrindjeri Yunnan Yarluwar Ruwe - Ngarrindjeri Speaking For Sea-Country', explores how Ngarrindjeri artists and culture workers envision their connection to country, to their lands and waters through their work. 

The team was keen to identify artists that represent a wide range of styles and art forms, ranging from painting, modern art, pottery to Ngarrindjeri weaving in new contexts.
