A conversations with artists Nicole Foreshew and Gina Mobayed will be held at 12:15pm, on Saturday December 8 in the Goulburn Regional Art Gallery.
Join them for an insight into the fascinating practice of Nicole Foreshew as she discusses her work with gallery director Gina Mobayed.
“Foreshew is a prolific artist who has exhibited across Australia and abroad,” Ms Mobayed said.
“In 2018, her video work, Garraywarra (2017), was screened as part of a major public art project at Wynyard train station and she was awarded both the Parliament of NSW Aboriginal Art Prize and the NSW Aboriginal Arts Fellowship in 2014.
“She is also a highly respected curator, presenting the 2015 edition of Primavera at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Australia.
“Foreshew, a member of the Wiradjuri nation, Central West NSW, works across an ambitious array of materials and processes.
“Her new body of work was formed from a recent residency in Morocco and presents sculpture and photographs.
“This exhibition maintains Foreshew's profound connection to her Country and intense explorations of meaning and materials.
“New sculptural forms are the result of complex processes that speak to both ceremonial and everyday uses of earth materials that Foreshew has become known for.
“The Gallery is thrilled to present 'Minyambul yiri yimbang (because it is a sacred thing)' and host a rare chance to hear from the artist directly,” Ms Mobayed said.
Based in northern NSW, Nicole is travelling to Goulburn for this one event during the exhibition. 'Minyambul yiri yimbang (because it is a sacred thing)' opens on Friday, 7 December at 6pm.
All are welcome to both events.
