Abstract

This exhibition catalogue essay, 'In/visible Mending' supports the regionally selected, curated survey of contemporary Wiradjuri indigenous fibre art, sculpture and printmaking including non-indigenous regional artists works selected nationally by Curators of the Wagga Art Gallery. The exhibition and catalogue publication contributes to the field of Australian visual art as part of a re-emergence of traditional Wiradjuri arts practices as a key aspect of the strengthening of Wiradjuri cultural identity and contemporary re-engagement with traditional practices toward reconciliation. The catalogue essay contextualises the works in relation to the wider field of Australian indigenous visual arts practice within contemporary cross-cultural collaborations. As such the catalogue provides an aesthetic and conceptual contribution to the contemporary Australian and International indigenous arts as practice-led research discourse and represents a significant research input in both a contemporary and past historic context. Exhibition date: 15 December 2012 - 3 February 2013.
