To find out more, visit www.hem­ing­ways­brew­ery.com For 25 years, Tor­res Strait Is­lander Kenny Bed­ford has been col­lect­ing the art of his peo­ple. Com­pris­ing paint­ings, prints and sculp­ture by senior, mid-ca­reer and emerg­ing Tor­res Strait Is­lander artists, his col­lec­tion plots the devel­op­ment of a unique art move­ment that com­bines new forms with tra­di­tional prac­tice, cre­ation mythol­ogy, coloni­sa­tion, Chris­tian­ity and the main­te­nance of Cul­ture. This is a tour­ing ex­hi­bi­tion that brings to­gether some of Aus­tralia’s lead­ing fe­male con­tem­po­rary artists who work across screen-based me­dia. Artists in­clude Kate Black­more, Jac­inta Tobin, Mikala Dwyer and Justene Wil­liams, Amala Groom, Deb­o­rah Kelly, Joan Ross, Soda Jerk, An­gel­ica Me­siti and Caro­line Gar­cia. Col­lec­tively and in­di­vid­u­ally the artists act as his­to­ri­ans, ar­chiv­ists and ar­chae­ol­o­gists – ex­ca­vat­ing his­tor­i­cal ma­te­ri­als, dig­ging through records and chan­nelling the past.
