MARKING THE INFINITE: Contemporary Women Artists from Aboriginal Australia
Posted on June 16 2018
MARKING THE INFINITE: Contemporary Women Artists from Aboriginal Australia is currently touring the USA, featuring nine Indigenous Australian artists:
Nonggirrnga Marawili, Wintjiya Napaltjarri, Yukultji Napangati, Angeline Ngale (Pwerle), Carlene West, Regina Pilawuk Wilson, Lena Yarinkura, Gulumbu Yunupingu and Nyapanyapa Yunupingu.
Featuring 70 significant works sourced from the collection of Debra and Dennis Scholl, the exhibition focuses on the marked contribution of Aboriginal women to what was initially a male dominated art market, as well as acknowledging their incredibly important role in their communities as leaders, both socially and ceremonially. Subject matter varies from artist to artist, yet the works are bound by the common theme of the infinite nature of our connection and communion with nature, whether the scattered an subtle clouds of the bush plum, or a cosmological reverie.
Delmore Gallery is thrilled that Utopia artist Angeline Ngale is participating in this significant exhibition, bringing further light to female Indigenous Australian artists in the USA. Click here to view paintings by Angeline Ngale, and here to view her biography and CV.
