Mavis Ngallametta: Show Me the Way to Go Home

South Brisbane, Brisbane Area

22 June 2020 – 7 February 2021 - 

Free Entry

Mavis Ngallametta (1944-2019) made a profound contribution to arts and culture nationally and particularly in Queensland, her home state. An elder of the Putch clan and a cultural leader of the Wik and Kugu people of Aurukun, Mavis Ngallametta was one of the most well-regarded senior community-based artists in Australia.

This exhibition will survey a decade of the artist's intricate and animated paintings, bringing together major works from her Pamp/Swamp, Kendall River, Wutan, Ikalath, Yalgamunken, intertidal estuary and powerful bushfire series for the first time. This will be a powerful aesthetic experience and great insight into life on Mavis Ngallametta’s country.
