The Utopia Collection
May 21 @ 10:00 am – August 14 @ 4:00 pm
On loan from Tambworth Regional Gallery
Tamworth Regional Gallery specialises in contemporary textiles. The Utopia Collection Bequest is made up of a core group of Aboriginal textile artworks complemented by works in other media that were designated as important archival pieces in the evolution of art production on the Utopia Homelands. Utopia is a region covering approximately 5000 square kilometres of land northeast of Alice Springs and is home to around 2000 Aboriginal people. The pieces came from the archives of the now defunct Utopia Cultural Centre. The tribal elders on the governing body of that Centre presented the Utopia Collection Bequest to Tamworth with the intention that the archive be kept intact as an aesthetic, cultural, historical and educational reference for posterity.
