Presented by Craft Victoria as part of NAIDOC week, YARN connects to this year’s theme, ‘For Our Elders.’
Curated by Jahkarli Felicitas Romanis (Pitta Pitta), YARN brings together the work of seven Indigenous makers, including Kuku Yalanji/Kalkadoon artist Kim Ah Sam.
Woven within each artist’s practice are the stories, lived experiences, knowledges and relational connections to Country. This exhibition draws on important oral histories and the significance of knowledge sharing through conversation and listening. Each artist is an agent of their voice, speaking to the gravity of arts practice as a form of storytelling.
