CLAUDIA MOODOONUTHI AT REDLAND ART GALLERY
Claudia Moodoonuthi's solo exhibition Ruby and Hunter: Clauudi Moodoonuthi, curated by Freja Carmichael, opens tonight at Redland Art Gallery. There will be a special floor talk with the artist on Sunday 2 July 10.30 am.
In Ruby and Hunter, stories relating to Claudia Moodoonuthi’s place of belonging, Kaiadilt Country of Bentinck Island in the Gulf of Carpentaria, QLD are represented through reflections on culture, identity and family ties. Inspired by her two dogs named Ruby and Hunter, Moodoonuthi honours her people’s innate relationship with dingos, and a shared understanding of the land and each other. These narratives are translated through vibrant paintings and sculptural forms that embody a deep connection to Country nurtured during Claudia Moodoonuthi’s formative years.
An exhibition held in conjunction with NAIDOC Week 2017.
The exhibition runs from Sunday 2 July – Sunday 13 August 2017. The gallery is not open on Saturdays. Visit their website for more information.
