Baluk Arts: Elements
Time Out says
Linden New Art's latest exhibition uses natural elements to connect Indigenous artists with culture
Created to encourage family groups and members of the Stolen Generations to reconnect with their culture and express their family histories through art, Baluk Arts’ new group exhibition uses materials inspired by the fundamental elements of nature – earth, air, water, fire, wood and metal – to explore issues surrounding loss, motherhood and places of belonging. It features extended bodies of work by artists Lisa Waup and Dominic White, alongside selected works by Baluk artists Gillian Garvie, Tallara Gray, Robert Kelly, Cassie Leatham, Beverley Meldrum and Rebecca Robinson. The exhibition is presented as part of ART + CLIMATE = CHANGE 2019, a Victoria-wide festival of exhibitions, theatre, lectures, events and forums around the threat of climate change and environmental destruction.
