Yamaji/Noongar curator Tui Raven has brought together works from First Nations artists across Western Australia, in Collective Ground — the first exhibition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander works acquired through AGWA’s COVID-19 Stimulus Package.

As the Guest Curator of Collective Ground – connections between ourselves and places, Tui has attempted to portray the connection between WA Aboriginal groups and the interconnected way that Aboriginal people view the world through deep time. Collective Ground is also an opportunity for WA audiences to pause during this pandemic and understand their own connection to the amazing state of WA, land, Country and each other.

“Collective Ground has been designed to remind the viewer of the vastness of Western Australia, our amazing Aboriginal artists and their connection to Country and deep time, and how the pandemic has affected our connection to place.”-  Raven.
