The City’s NAIDOC Week celebrations open with an exhibition - Burda-Burda Dhulga - at the Joondalup Art Gallery, featuring the work of internationally renowned artist Julie Dowling.
Dowling’s work investigates injustices suffered by the Indigenous community and her pictorial works have a strong political edge.
Her work has been exhibited extensively in Australia and overseas.
Descended from the Badimaya First Nation people from the region around Mt. Magnet Payne's Find & Lake Moore, Dowling references such diverse art traditions in her work, including European portraiture and Christian icons, mural painting and Indigenous iconography.
Her work is dazzling and deep, imbued with meaning and spirit, containing powerful images of stolen generation children juxtaposed with heavy embellishments of jewels and glitter.
Wednesday June 29 – Friday July 29
Tuesday to Friday (gallery opening hours), 10.00am – 2.00pm
