Exhibition Dates: Saturday 14 March – Sunday 26 April 2009
Curator: Vicki West
Artists: Lola Greeno, Lorna Riley & Denise Ava Robinson
Re-earthing was an exhibition curated by Vicki West that showcased the responses of three Tasmanian Aboriginal artists to social, political and environmental issues within the state.
Tasmanians have a reputation for openly challenging and debating environmental practices within Tasmania. However, despite this, many current industry practices are believed to threaten Tasmanian Aboriginal culture – a culture built upon respect for and responsibility to the land. Through installation and painting, artists Lola Greeno, Lorna Riley and Denise Ava Robinson reflect on their relationship to place in a globalised and industrialised world.
The Official Ten Days on the Island opening was on the 28th of March at 2pm followed by Free@3?.
