The University of Sydney

dot, dot, dot […] exhibition

The Papunya dot is a powerful symbol of social and cultural identity in Aboriginal art and culture. In a new exhibition at Sydney College of the Arts, a group of artists harness the power that the dot holds for Aboriginal people, as a starting point to explore their own beliefs and ideas that drive them as artists in Australian society.

The exhibition titled dot, dot, dot […] is curated by the University of Sydney’s SCA Lecturer, Wingara Mura Fellow and Dharug artist Janelle Evans. It follows an exhibition in Paris in 2012 – Beyond the Papunya Dot curated by Geraldine Le Roux – that exposed the diverse and complex nature of contemporary Indigenous art through the work of nine artists including Janelle Evans.

In contrast to the Paris show, dot, dot, dot […], which is a collaborative project of Janelle Evans and Geraldine Le Roux, brings together 10 Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australian artists to find the deeper meaning and creative potential of the universal spherical form, unique to each artist.

When: 6-29 July 2017 (official opening 5 July, 6pm-8pm)

Exhibiting artists: Bronwyn Bancroft, Jon Cattapan, Lindy Lee, Dacchi Dang, John Di Stefano, David Asher Brook, Ms Saffaa, Armelle Swan, ek.1 [Emma Hicks + Katie Louise Williams] + Will Cooke, and Janelle Evans.

Gallery Hours: Mon-Fri, 11am-5pm and Sat, 11am-4pm
