Join us at the John Curtin Gallery (JCG) as we host the four featured artists – Amanda Bell, Lea Taylor, Brett Nannup and Tyrown Waigana – along with Guest Curator Zali Morgan in a discussion about their works in the exhibition N’yettin-ngal Wagur – Yeye Wongie [Ancestors Breath – Today Talk] which is on show at JCG now.

These new commissions are in response to The Herbert Mayer Collection of Carrolup Artwork.

Through a diverse range of mediums and styles, the artists bring to the present-day the intertwined stories of the Carrolup child artists and their own personal context. 

The commissions reflect the aesthetics, design and themes present in the original Carrolup works, honouring Noongar histories and the enduring legacy of the Carrolup artists and ancestors.

Questions will be welcomed at the end of each section. Tea and coffee is available.

JCG will be open until 4 pm.
