TALK: Friday Talk: Carrolup Noongar Artists - a talk by Ainslie Gatt
|Friday Talk: Carrolup Noongar Artists - a talk by Ainslie Gatt
In the period 1946-1951, without formal artistic training, the children from Carrolup Native Settlement created pictorial representations of their country, depicting from their memory detailed landscapes of flora and fauna. These included kangaroos, possums, and birdlife and animated Noongar people participating in corroborees and hunting, totemic symbols, and the stylistic incorporation of atmospheric perspective.
Since that time, new generations of Noongar artists, including those with direct lineage to the Carrolup Settlement artists, have emerged with their unique visions of memory and the landscape.
Join senior curator and art consultant Ainslie Gatt as she addresses lineage and developments in the work of Noongar artists.
