GUIDED EXHIBITION TOUR
THURSDAY, 12 JUL 10:30 AM - 11:15 AM
with Neelika Jayawardane, Associate Professor, State University of New York-Oswego and Carly Lane, Curator of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art at the Art Gallery of Western Australia.
Continental Drift is the first major exhibition from a new Gallery program that celebrates and examines global black art and culture. Continental Drift highlights the shared experiences of contemporary blak/black artists from South Africa and north Australia. While both countries have different histories, British colonisation had dramatic effects on their black peoples, many of which continue to be experienced today.
