About ‘Hunter Red: Re(A)d Earth’
Connection to Country remains central and enduring in Aboriginal culture regardless of the complexities entrenched by government policies since colonisation. ‘Hunter Red: Re(A)d Earth’ presents contemporary Aboriginal artists’ perspectives on this connection and acknowledges ‘reading’ of the earth as elemental for Aboriginal people. Building on the strength of existing cultural foundations in the region, this multidisciplinary exhibition comprises works selected for their reflection of Country or Dreaming. These contemporary Aboriginal artists use traditional or new media in traditional or new ways. Contemporary does not have to mean a divergence from cultural practice and lore.
