Curated by Hetti Perkins and Jonathan Jones the Southeast Aboriginal Arts Market brings together artists and collectives from regional and coastal New South Wales, ACT, southern Victoria, the Murray basin catchment and Tasmania. With over 60 different artists and collectives coming together this event will present traditional and contemporary practices, showcasing work in a variety of mediums including ceramics, jewellery, weaving, photography, carving, textiles, painting, and publishing.
Hetti Perkins and Jonathan Jones said, “Southeast is a curated showcase celebrating the cultural and visual heritage of southeastern Aboriginal Australia. It offers a special opportunity to ‘meet the makers’ and experience the unique creativity of contemporary art from this region. Visitors can engage directly with local artists, acquire original artworks, and learn about a region rich in traditional and contemporary artistic expressions.”
