QAGOMA – Gone Fishing
Drawn from the QAGOMA collection, Gone Fishing sees a collection of works from Indigenous Australian artists that affirm the social, cultural and recreational activity of fishing. This free exhibition is centred around the environmental threats Sea Country is currently facing from rising and warming seas, the contamination of waters and Traditional Owners’ struggle to care for their Sea Country under the current Native Title Law. Throughout the course of the exhibition you will be able to peruse the works from Indigenous Australian artists including Yvonne Koolmatrie, Wanyubi Marika, Mavis Ngallametta, Goobalathaldin Dick Roughsey and Bernard Singleton Jr and more, in Gone Fishing’s ‘Sea rights: Politics, lore and custom’, ‘Along the shoreline’ and ‘Traps, tackle and gear’ displays.
This free exhibition will be anchored at QAGOMA until January 2024 – to learn more, visit the QAGOMA website.
