Memory: Places and Country | Sydney Contemporary

& New Works from Spinifex Arts Project

06 September 2023 – 10 September 2023

About Exhibition

How are memories of place conceptualised by the ancestral narratives of the Dreaming and its Songlines, and how do they find expression in painting? How is cultural knowledge retained, generated and communicated through memory? Is artistic memory compromised or strengthened in old age?

For Sydney Contemporary 2023, D’Lan Contemporary will present a group show of selected artists illuminating and confounding ancestral, personal, generational, and collective memories in their work. Emerging artists Dora Parker and Timo Hogan from Spinifex Arts Project will sit alongside masters such as Clifford Possum Tjapaltjarri, Paddy Bedford and Makinti Napanangka, as well as select artists from the Wanarn Painting Program in Western Australia.
