Online Opening: "Aboriginal Screen-Printed Textiles from Australia's Top End"

Fri 12/3 • 6PM - 7PM PST

Digital Event

The Fowler presents a stunning exhibition of 60 distinctive, screen-printed textiles made by 39 contemporary artists at five Aboriginal-owned art centers in Northern Australia, known as the “Top End.” The presentation is organized around the individual art centers, revealing the creativity and innovation of Aboriginal artists and their sources of inspiration. The textiles pay tribute to the resilience and beauty of Aboriginal Australia, and celebrates the enduring connections between peoples and their lands.

Join us online for an opening program with Joanna Barrkman, Senior Curator of Southeast Asian and Pacific Arts. Special greetings from the art centers will be followed by a virtual walkthrough of the exhibition with Barrkman, including a sneak peek at an exhibition video that traces the screen-printing process and the ways in which artists translate ancient painting techniques into new media.

The exhibition opens to the public Sunday, December 5.

Opening Program: Join us online to hear from exhibition curators, participating artists, and key players who make possible our multifaceted presentations of world arts and cultures.
