SE Aboriginal Arts Market at Carriageworks

Posted by Aboriginal Art Directory | 19.10.20

Carriageworks, Australia’s largest contemporary multi-arts centre, today announced it will present its fourth annual edition of the SOUTHEAST Aboriginal Arts Market over four days from (5pm AEDT) 26 through to 29 November 2020. The event is being curated by the ever-busy Hetti Perkins, with Wiradjuri / Kamilaroi artist, Jonathan Jones. SOUTHEAST is, as the name suggests, featuring the creative diversity of south-east Australian Aboriginal art, bringing together 26 independent Aboriginal artists and collectives from: regional and coastal New South Wales, ACT, southern Victoria, the Murray–Darling basin catchment and Tasmania. The event is online given the restrictions around Corona virus. Proceeds from the sales of artworks will go directly to the artists - astonishing really given the costs to stage the event and promote the artists until we hear of the generosity of our Government (IVIAS), as well as support from Bloomberg Philanthropies and Campos Coffee. The range of disciplines being featured includes wellbeing, fashion, art and design with work from a variety of mediums such as ceramics, jewellery, weaving, photography, carving, textiles, painting, and works on paper. Carriageworks CEO Blair French said, "Carriageworks remains deeply committed to this annual event and this year’s online market is an important step in ensuring that the momentum is not lost in 2020. SOUTHEAST continues to be a unique opportunity for the community to explore work by Indigenous artists from across south-east Aboriginal Australia and directly support their practice during these hard times through purchasing work. Curators Hetti Perkins and Jonathan Jones said, "SOUTHEAST Aboriginal Arts Market celebrates tradition today, the sharing of old knowledge and old stories in new ways." Bloomberg Philanthropies is a Major Partner of Carriageworks and the Presenting Partner of SOUTHEAST. The community event is also supported by Partner Campos Coffee and by the Australian Government through the Indigenous Visual» Read More
