North By North-West

Queensland Art Gallery

North by North-West is a vibrant exhibition now showing at Queensland Art Gallery, featuring stunning new artworks and old favourites from the Gallery’s Indigenous Australian art collection.

North by North-West highlights unique visual threads that traverse the top half of Australia, from the Tiwi in the north and across to the Gija and Bardi peoples from Warmun and Broome in the Kimberley region.

North By North-West, Queensland Art Gallery

The exhibition celebrates the regionally specific styles of each Country; common motifs and ancestral stories are transformed across technique, methods and styles through symbol, colour and texture.

Artworks range from representations of the Seven Sisters constellation - a recurring subject throughout the continent - to intimate watercolour landscapes and bold statements.
