Alchemy

Exhibition and Shows

30 May 2024 to 31 Aug 2024 Once Only Event

Light, layers and tactility – Alchemy features new commissions by First Nations creative practitioners from across Australia who specialise in natural dyeing techniques. Taking its title from the protoscientific tradition of transforming one kind of material into another, Alchemy uncovers the processes involved in producing pigments and dyes.

Alchemy shares the deep social and cultural knowledge that informs the production of dyed natural fibres. Making the magical tangible, participating Indigenous Art Centres have chosen to work intergenerationally and collaboratively to realise works that have not been attempted in decades or are of completely new design. Extending beyond process, this exhibition shares the wider social and cultural narratives surrounding each of the commissions, such as the matrilineal relationships embedded within industry practice.
