Across Coun­try: Indige­nous Work From The Col­lec­tion

Where Gold Coast - - What’s On -

Gallery at HOTA has one of the largest col­lec­tions of Abo­rig­i­nal and Tor­res Strait Is­lan­der art in re­gional Aus­tralia that has been de­vel­oped through nu­mer­ous do­na­tions and by ac­tively ac­quir­ing works by Aus­tralia’s lead­ing Indige­nous artists. The col­lec­tion is broad in scope and in­cludes ex­am­ples from many sig­nif­i­cant Indige­nous arts com­mu­ni­ties; and fea­tures both tra­di­tional, con­tem­po­rary and ur­ban works across all me­dia. “Across Coun­try” is the first sig­nif­i­cant ap­praisal of the Gallery’s col­lec­tion that seeks to iden­tify themes, sto­ries and con­nec­tions be­tween the many artists and works rep­re­sented. Cre­at­ing art as a medium of ex­change and com­mu­ni­ca­tion; hu­man con­di­tion, kin­ship, his­tory and the nat­u­ral and spir­i­tual en­vi­ron­ments are ex­plored through a se­lec­tion of paint­ings, pho­tog­ra­phy, prints, draw­ings and three-di­men­sional ob­jects.

Un­til 29 April, Gallery at HOTA, 135 Bun­dall Road, Surfers Par­adise. 5588 4067.
