Mavis Ngallametta: Show me the way to go home
Bookings essential to visit Qld Art Gallery.
Mavis Ngallametta (1944-2019) made a profound contribution to arts and culture nationally and particularly in Queensland, her home state. An elder of the Putch clan and a cultural leader of the Wik and Kugu people of Aurukun, Mavis Ngallametta was one of the most well-regarded senior community-based artists in Australia.
This exhibition will survey a decade of the artist’s intricate and animated paintings, bringing together major works from her Pamp/Swamp, Kendall River, Wutan, Ikalath, Yalgamunken, intertidal estuary and powerful bushfire series for the first time. This will be a powerful aesthetic experience and great insight into life on Mavis Ngallametta’s country.
