Graphic Intervention – Lake Burley Griffin foreshore | DESIGN Canberra 2020

Festivals and Celebrations

29 Nov 2020 Daily Event

The popular DESIGN Canberra graphic intervention project has transformed our city centre every November. In 2020, the program will be bigger than ever with three new installations across Canberra.

The Lake Burley Griffin graphic intervention will be designed by Luritja artist Kayannie Denigan.

This graphic intervention will be presented on Ngunnawal Country in front of the new CCAS Gallery in the Commonwealth Place Precinct.

The Ngunnawal are the Indigenous people of this region and its first inhabitants. It is a harsh climate and difficult country for hunter-gatherer people. To live here required great knowledge of the environment, skilful custodianship of it and close cooperation. Ngunnawal people continue to live and travel through the Canberra region, preserving their culture by maintaining connections to land and through artistic expression.

In 2020, DESIGN Canberra signature exhibitions will be presented at the new CCAS Gallery in the Commonwealth Place Precinct. Designed by Durbach Block Architects and built at the edge of Lake Burley Griffin, the Commwonwealth Place precinct is a careful and sensitive insertion into the environment. The dominant dish form enhances the views of Old and New Parliament Houses from across the lake.
