NAIDOC Week with Wayne Quilliam
Time Out says
A free digital art exhibit is coming to Darling Quarter for NAIDOC Week
Indigenous artist Wayne Quilliam has created 16 large-scale artworks that reflect on this year’s NAIDOC Week theme ‘Voice. Treaty. Truth. Let’s work together for a shared future’. This photographic series titled Instaculture will be presented inside four large cubes displayed in the outdoor exhibition space at Darling Quarter.
Quilliam’s digitally produced works are mostly landscapes, captured by digital cameras and drones, featuring the earth, sky and bodies of freshwater and saltwater. He uses a kind of mirroring, kaleidoscope effect which should be mesmerising when turned into cube structures. The artist is presenting these as a digital representation of traditional Aboriginal art, which can be viewed for free, 24 hours a day from July 1-August 3.
Running alongside the exhibition, there will also be a series of free, family-friendly workshops held in the foyer of the Monkey Baa Theatre from July 8-11. The whole family can watch a traditional didgeridoo performance, be part of an interactive dance show, and listen to Dreamtime stories. The kids can get their faces painted with ochre paint before they learn about the symbols used in Aboriginal art and create their own artwork.
