Barka The Forgotten River

At Signal Point Gallery, Goolwa Wharf Precinct

Thursday 10 December 2020 to Tuesday 26 January 2021
10:00am - 4:00pm, 7 days Save to calendar

Cost: Free

A collaboration between respected Barkandji Elder, Uncle Badger Bates, non-Indigenous artist, Justine Muller, and the Wilcannia community.  

A beautiful, tender and gripping series of paintings, linoprints, sculpture, installation and sound, which map a timeline of the love that these artists have for the Barka/Darling River – “our Mother and the blood in our veins” – and its people, the Barkandji. BARKA tells the story of desperate fear for the river and its ecology; and the Barkandji people’s determination to fight for the river’s health and its fundamental role in maintaining the wellbeing of their cultural, social and economic life.

Gallery hours: Mon to Sun 10am–4pm
