Barka: The Forgotten River

  • Exhibition/Show
  • Free
10th Dec 2020 - 25th Jan 2021
Signal Point Gallery
Goolwa Wharf Precinct SA

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
