Join us to celebrate the opening of two new exhibitions that examine our relationships with other species.
To companion a companion is an exhibition by Fernando do Campo that proposes humans as a companion species to birds. With one foot in the field and the other in the archives, Fernando do Campo focuses on ‘companioning’ as an artistic strategy, researching the knotted histories of urban multispecies encounters through listening, painting, archiving and plural histories.
The Dingo Project: Wongari investigates the spiritual mythology and historical narratives that connect dingoes to Aboriginal Australia. Originally curated for Ngununggula in the NSW Southern Highlands, The Dingo Project: Wongari shifts the focus of Djon Mundine’s curatorial project to Butchulla country and the Wongari of K’gari. Featuring artists from across the country alongside Butchulla perspectives, The Dingo Project: Wongari investigates the spiritual mythology and historical narratives that connect dingoes to Aboriginal Australia.
Both exhibitions will launch with a Wongari Songline performance by Bruce Waia and Travis Page at 5.45pm.
