Ritual The Past in the Present

Exhibition on at Cairns Art Gallery.

Presented in Partnership with Cairns Indigenous Art Fair (CIAF).

 

Indigenous North Australian and Asia Pacific Art.

 

RITUAL the past in the present extends the Gallery’s research interest in contemporary art practices that explore narratives around issues of Australian Indigenous and global black identity in the world’s tropic zone.

 

The defining characteristic of ritual, as a recurrent act based on the concept of passage and transformation to bring the past into the present, is explored through artworks that engage with social, divinatory and cyclical rituals and respond to the practice, processes and performative nature of rituals.

 

Entry: Free

 

Gallery closed on Public Holidays.
