Aboriginal Programs

Beyond The Dot: 12 Years Of Indigenous Programming

10 February – 13 May 2012

Since 2000, the gallery and its Aboriginal Reference Group have worked together to promote, support and celebrate Aboriginal culture in the region.

This exhibition recognised the significant achievement of that collaboration through selected works from such landmark exhibitions as A Possum Skin Cloak by the Lake (2011), yapang marruma: making our way (stories of the Stolen) (2009), Stories: country, knowledge, spirit & politics (2006) and Passage (2004).

Artists included Douglas Archibald, Mervyn Bishop, Corrie Fullard, Jeanette James, Jonathan Jones and Jim Ridgeway. Works were accessed either from the LMCAG collection or through artists and/or lenders.

A gallery project curated by Donna Fernando and emerging curator, Maryanne Walmsley
