ACE Open

Next Matriarch

Curated by Kimberley Moulton and Liz Nowell

Artists: Paola Balla, Ali Gumillya Baker, Hannah Brontë, Miriam Charlie, Amrita Hepi, Nicole Monks, Kaylene Whiskey

Next Matriarch hosts a conversation between seven Aboriginal women who reflect the next wave of Sovereign female voices in Australian contemporary art.

Calling on the strength of women past, present and future, the exhibition presents new and recent photography, painting, video and installation works by leading artists from across Australia.

From Ancestral healing to the dystopia of modern society, the language of pop culture and the Sovereign female body as a carrier of children, resilience and knowledge, these works celebrate solidarity and sisterhood. This is the Next Matriarch.

Supported by TARNANTHI: Festival of Contemporary Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Art, presented by the Art Gallery of South Australia in partnership with BHP and with support of the Government of South Australia.
