NORTH BY EAST WEST



with artists Darrell Sibosado, Garry Sibosado, Joel Sam, Sam Savage and curators Janina Harding, Artistic Director, Cairns Indigenous Art Fair and Teho Ropeyarn, Assistant Curator, Cairns Art Gallery.



North by East West celebrates the relationship between Torres Strait Islander and Aboriginal cultures through a shared history based around the pearl shell, which was used both as a cultural medium and a commodity for industry. The traditional cultural practice of pearl shell carving and design continues today in the Torres Strait as well as the Kimberley Coast by contemporary artists through the creation of wood sculptures, fine jewellery, etchings and prints.
