Wrapped in Culture
On display at the Queen Victoria Art Gallery from 22 January – 18 July 2021
Witness the Australian premiere of a world-first exhibition that explores the collaboration between the First Nations People of Canada and Australia.
Wrapped in Culture is a powerful reclamation project grounded in community. The project was developed in November 2017 when 10 artists created traditional robes (a buffalo robe and possum skin cloak) over a 3-week workshop in Ottawa, Canada.
The international joining of these two groups of artists serves as a community reconciliation project. Reviving two culturally distinct, yet similar, artistic traditions that were used historically for both sacred and practical purposes.
The Queen Victoria Art Gallery will be the first Australian location to host the travelling exhibition.
