Former NADIOC Artist of the Year, A.Professor Wayne Quilliam is celebrating the 2019 NAIDOC week theme of 'Voice. Treaty. Truth.' with his exciting new installation at Darling Quarter.

The installation, dubbed Instaculture, consists of four huge display cubes with 16 artworks, each measuring over two square metres. Looking at the co-existence of nature and culture, Quilliam uses photographs and text to take the audience deep into the hypnotic graphics of the Australian landscape. Textures found in nature are emphasised in the works, exploring the six seasons of the Aboriginal Australian culture through the digital imagery of earth, sky and water.

When walking around these vibrant installations take time to look at the decals in front of each image, they contain a traditional piece of text with its English translation and the Aboriginal language it comes from.

In conjunction with the exhibition, there will be a bunch of free family-friendly workshops held in the foyer of the Monkey Baa Theatre from July 8 to July 11. These will include a didgeridoo show, face painting and storytelling, you can find more info on the workshops and installations here.

Instaculture will be on display 24 hours a day.
