New Acquisitions / New Perspectives brings together selected artworks acquired by Flinders University Museum of Art (FUMA) 2018 – 2023.
This dynamic showcase of emerging and established artists invites engagement with First Nations knowledges, perspectives and experiences through the lens of 21st century Australia. In the juxtaposition of prints, paintings and photographs, the exhibition amplifies the diverse and distinctive vision of individual artists, while revealing the intersecting themes and shared concerns that connect them.
Established for purposes of teaching, learning and research in 1966, the FUMA collections have since grown to number more than 8,000 original works, obtained largely though the generosity of private donors. We gratefully acknowledge the artists, collectors and friends who have most recently supported the museum and made this exhibition possible.
Exhibited artists include Ali Gumillya Baker, Michael Cook, Djäti Garrawurra, Vanessa Inkamala, Noŋgirrŋa Marawili, Arone Raymond Meeks, Hayley Millar Baker, Wanharrawurr Munuggur 2, Marrnyula Munuŋgurr, Claude Pannka, r e a, Brenton Raberaba, Wenten Rubuntja, Sandra Saunders, Siena Milkila Stubbs, Christian Thompson, Whiskey Tjukangku, James Tylor and Laura Wills, Dhukumul Wanambi, Elaine Woods and Venita Woods, and Nyapanyapa Yunupingu.
