Manggan – gather, gathers, gathering
Emerging from the rainforest canopy of Far North Queensland and a culture spanning countless generations, ‘Manggan – gather, gathers, gathering’ shares knowledge through the recent works of 19 Indigenous artists from Girringun Aboriginal Art Centre alongside collection objects from the South Australian Museum.
‘Manggan – gather, gathers, gathering’ is a travelling exhibition in partnership between Girringun Aborginal Art Centre, the South Australian Museum, and toured by Museums & Galleries Queensland. This exhibition is supported by the Visions regional touring program, an Australian Government program aiming to improve access to cultural material for all Australians. It is supported through the Australian Government’s Indigenous Visual Arts Industry Support program and the Queensland Government; and proudly sponsored by Conrad Gargett, Urban Art Projects and TED.
