Lola Greeno: Cultural Jewels
19 February - 24 April 2016
Lola Greeno is a an internationally respected Indigenous artist and one of only a handful of Tasmanian Aboriginal women practising the art of shell stringing. The themes of the exhibition, which features natural materials such as Echidna quill, kelp, feather, rare Marieener shell and bone, are strongly woven around the traditions of her island home. This is shown alongside more contemporary sculptural works, her response to concerns for the environmental and the cultural and familial future of shell stringing in northern Tasmania.
Lovers of Neptune's Cabinet
19 February - 24 April
In 1720 six Dutch shell collectors met once a month to share their love of shells. They called themselves the ‘Lovers of Neptune’s Cabinet’ and according to scholar Henry E. Coomans, their small group was the first conchological society. In a tribute to this coterie of shell lovers, and as a complement to the exhibition Lola Greeno: Cultural Jewels, 2016 Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art artists selected are exhibiting work inspired by the world of the shell.
