An Outdoor Exhibition of Contemporary Indigenous Art
In April of this year South Stradbroke Island nurtured an annual pilgrimage of 13 passionate artists for a five-day journey alongside lead artist and mentor, Gordon Hookey. Accompanied by Laurie Nilsen, Rick Roser and Bianca Beetson, creative impulses and ideas flowed as naturally as the tide.
This December, HOTA will host an exhibition featuring these artists in our parklands. Contemporary and traditional, ephemeral, site-specific installations will feature as part of this annual exhibition that highlights the enriching experiences from the 2019 camp artists.
The weekend will feature all of this, plus artist talks, spoken word and performance around the Lake on Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th of December 2019.
Participating artists: Colin Appo, Lystra Bisschop, Alara Cameron, Sonja Carmichael, Mark Cora, Claire Freeman, Sylvia Nakachi, Will Probert, Rebecca Ray, Ronda Sharpe, Dominique Normand.
Mentors: Libby Harward and Alicia Jones.
