UMI Arts presents its second annual Freshwater Saltwater touring exhibition curated by Teho Ropeyarn.
Freshwater Saltwater: Existence explores the concept of “existence” for contemporary Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists who live and work in Far North Queensland.
The works selected for this exhibition reveal the existence of the artists, their life and experiences and motives applied in their current practice by representing self; traditionally, contemporarily, metaphorically, visually, historically and culturally.
The twenty-two artists featured in Freshwater Saltwater: Existence represent a region that is diverse in history and strong in cultural practice.
