No Black Seas- Tarnanthi Exhibition

Exhibition and Shows

18 Oct 2019 to 7 Dec 2019

No Black Seas is a specially commissioned exhibition of new works by artists from Ceduna, a South Australian coastal town nestled on the Great Australian Bight. The exhibition addresses the artists’ cultural and personal connections with the Bight and the impact that drilling would have on country and community; sounding the alarm for an issue that is not only theirs but all of ours.

For the Mirning, Kokatha and Wirangu artists from Arts Ceduna, the proposed drilling of the Bight has posed not only an environmental threat but a threat to their home and to their cultural identity, which is intrinsically tied to the lands and waters of the region. For them, the destruction of the Great Australian Bight would be another in a series of historic and current social, environmental, political and economic injustices.

No Black Seas also features artistic contributions from Kristen Bobyk, Pam Diment, Elizabeth Donaldson and Denise Scott. Artwork development and production supported by Ku Arts.

ACE Open and Ku Arts are proud to partner in the presentation of work from South Australian Aboriginal artists during Tarnanthi.
