Dreaming Trails
29 Oct - 3 Dec 2017
Gallery 2 & 3

Prior to European contact, Aboriginal communities had established a complex web of trade routes all over the continent, requiring people from different areas to respect each other’s' rights, boundaries and cultural differences, and providing an avenue for settling disputes between warring groups, meeting to discuss Dreaming laws and for sharing gifts of respect.

Dreaming Trails is a partnership between Yarrawarra Aboriginal Cultural Centre and Lismore Regional Gallery, and has been curated by Gumbaynggirr artist and curator, Alison Williams.

Working with Elders and visits to cultural sites, Williams has explored the notion of trade links between Bundjalung, Yaegl and Gumbaynggirr nations, with artists of these nations commissioned to create works based on historical objects from the collections of the Richmond River Historical Society and Yarrawarra telling the story of traditional trade.

Featuring: Kylie Caldwell, Jai Walker, Brentyn Lugnan, Kim Healey, Jeremy Mudjai Devitt, Frances Belle Parker and Digby Moran.

 

 

Dreaming Trails is a collaboration between Yarrawarra Aboriginal Cultural Centre and Lismore Regional Gallery, and has been supported by the Aboriginal Regional Arts Fund through Create NSW.
