Joondalup Art Gallery hosts exhibition curated by Sharyn Egan for Naidoc Week.
PROMINENT Indigenous artist Sharyn Egan has curated an exhibition at Joondalup Art Gallery as part of the City of Joondalup’s Naidoc Week celebrations.
Egan is a Wadjuk Noongar woman who describes herself as a painter, sculptor and collector.
She is presenting Joondalup Boorungur.
The exhibition features works by Lindsay Harris and Sally Morgan, along with others by Tjyllyungoo Lance Chadd, Richard Walley and Egan.
The works share Noongar perspectives on the totemic relationships in this region. Egan said Boorungur means both “spiritual elder brother” and “blood brother relation”.
“Boorungur defines people’s roles and responsibilities and their relationships with each other and creation,” she said.
“The artworks in this exhibition speak of the stories of the artists, their families, their culture and their traditions.”
Joondalup Boorungur runs until July 27 from 10am to 2pm on Tuesdays to Thursdays and 10.30am to 2.30pm on Fridays at Joondalup Art Gallery in Central Walk.
