As part of the Connecting Stories initiative Moreton Bay Regional Council’s art galleries are hosting two immersive Indigenous Art Tours delivered by Aboriginal Art Co.
The tours will provide audiences with opportunity to immerse themselves in First Nations Art and Culture. The tour on Saturday 8 May will include:
Storytelling and local histories from Traditional Owners
Lunch showcasing native ingredients
Guided exhibition tours, artist and curator talks by First Nations creatives
First Nations exhibitions across Moreton Bay Regional Council’s three art galleries:
Pine Rivers Gallery exhibition - IDEN-DEFY
IDEN-DEFY brings together a collection of portraits by First Nation artists that engage in the discourse around individual and communal identity.
Redcliffe Art Gallery exhibition - Weapons for the soldier
This major exhibition brings together Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australian artists to examine complex themes of weaponry, warfare, and protecting land and Country.
Caboolture Regional Art Gallery exhibition - Montages: The Full Cut, 1999 - 2015
Indigenous artist Tracey Moffatt and her long-time collaborator Gary Hillberg present an ode to cinema and to the cinematic form, offering unprecedented insight into the stereotypes.
