Interpretive Wonderings is an exhibition produced in collaboration with the Culpra Milli Aboriginal Corporation. It maps works shaped by the stories and history of the country of Culpra Station, NSW.
The upcoming exhibition at the Mildura Arts Centre reflects and represents a coming together through diversity of a range of Aboriginal artists and non-Indigenous creative practitioners, in a collaboration underpinned by a shared commitment to the preservation, protection, promotion and celebration of Aboriginal culture and custodianship through country.
The workshop, a collaborative project between Culpra Milli Aboriginal Corporation, RMIT University, University of Technology Sydney and Monash University aimed to develop various artworks by mapping the land in ways that challenge cartographic convention.
“The mappings produced often challenge the notion of what is generally accepted to be a map – they include drawings, paintings, video and audio installations and performance pieces,” Gilbert said.
The exhibition includes a hands-on experience with artefacts that are connected to the artworks and Culpra Station. It also features a range of historical maps of the region and the property, together with an educational component.
