Boomalli Aboriginal Artist Co-operative presents
BOOMALLI NOW ~ Maddison Gibbs, Hayley Pigram, Jai Walker & Rubyrose Bancroft
Boomalli Aboriginal Artists Co-operative was established in 1987 by ten Aboriginal Artists. These Artists were striving for recognition within mainstream art society and their diversity was unparalleled. They challenged preconceptions around urban- based Aboriginal Artists and created a unique space for themselves within the art world. Boomalli is a word from three different NSW language groups – Gamileroi, Bundjalung and Wiradjuri. It means to make a mark; to strike. BOOMALLI NOW presents the next generation of Boomalli artists who, over thirty years later, continue to make a mark on the art world, to challenge stereotypes and express the diversity of Aboriginal cultural life.
Opening Thursday 21 November, 6pm
Open 22 November - 14 December, Tuesday - Friday 10am - 5pm & Saturdays 11am - 3pm
