Join Blake Society member, Rev Dr Doug Purnell OAM, on a tour of 'Gifts of the Artists: Indigenous works from the Warmun Community'. Tour details are below:
Date: Saturday 18 May, 2013
Venue: McGlade Gallery, Australian Catholic University, 25a Barker Street, Strathfield
'Gifts of the Artists' is an exhibition of important indigenous art. It offers insight into the positive interactions between Indigenous people and Christian missionary activity.
Doug says: 'This artwork is important because it is a positive story about missionary work over fifty years, and it is intriguing for the Aboriginal community’s use of the word ‘two-way’ when talking of their Christian faith and their traditional culture...'
Doug will conduct a tour and help people to look and interact with the exhibition and then talk about what the work says to us.
