The University of Queensland proudly presents Our Way, Contemporary Aboriginal Art from Lockhart River, the first exhibition to survey the work of the Lockhart River Art Gang. Our Way celebrates the remarkable story of this group of 24 young artists from a remote Aboriginal community in Queensland’s Cape York, several of whom have achieved national and international recognition. Rosella Namok, Samantha Hobson and Fiona Omeenyo lead the movement with spectacular and diverse insights into country, culture and history. The exhibition of 119 artworks, opening on 5 May 2007, features the fine art printmaking from the Art Gang’s early years, along with major paintings.
A major publication of the same title, written and compiled by curator Dr Sally Butler (lecturer in Art History at The University of Queensland), and published by University of Queensland Press, will be launched on 4 May 2007 and released in conjunction with this exhibition. Premier Beattie will also launch this publication in New York on 8 May 2007.
