Galerie IDAIA Paris: Mother/Daughter

left — at Galerie IDAIA Paris

MOTHER/DAUGHTER – Artistes Femmes des Premières Nations Australiennes explores the mother/daughter relationship experienced by Australian First Nations women artists, showcasing the work of more than 28 artists living in remote territories as well as in major cities, from south-east Australia to Arnhem Land, via the Central Desert and the Kimberley.

The exhibition explores the mother/daughter relationship as experienced by Australian First Nations women artists, and highlights its various aspects and issues, particularly those essential to artistic and cultural transmission. The works presented also reveal the creative strength and independence of these women, their commitment to the fight for recognition of their social and land rights, and the protection of their ancestral lands and natural resources.

The result of close collaboration with the artists and their cooperatives, the selection of works reflects the rich diversity of Australian First Nations artistic practices: acrylic paintings, ochre paintings, barks, sculptures, photographs, prints and textiles.

The exhibition brings together more than 28 artists from across Australia:

Boomalli Artists, Sydney, NSW : Bronwyn & Rubyrose Bancroft ; Euphemia & Tracey Bostock ; Charmaine Davis & Chenaya Bancroft-Davis ; Kyra Kum-Sing & Kathy Malera Bandjalan ; Nioka Lowe-Brennan & Wanita Lowe.
