Piinpi: Contemporary Indigenous Fashion

Exhibition and Shows

27 Sep 2020 to 29 Nov 2020 Once Only Event

This exhibition brings together a selection of garments and textiles by First Nations designers and artists from around Australia. The first major survey of contemporary Indigenous Australian fashion to be undertaken in this country, Piinpi sheds lights on a growing industry set to become Australia’s major fashion movement. Piinpi: Contemporary Indigenous Fashion celebrates Indigenous art, history and culture through the lens of contemporary fashion.

Piinpi, an Indigenous word commonly used across regions of East Coast Cape York Peninsula, refers to Indigenous ‘seasonal changes’ and the regeneration of Country. For centuries, Indigenous knowledge and connection to the land has played a pivotal role in art and culture for Australia’s First Peoples. Seasonal changes signify the availability of mayi (bush foods), when to travel, and when to collect traditional materials for ceremony and malkari (traditional dance). Across the landscape of Indigenous fashion today designers and artists are sharing their stories through beautifully crafted fabrics and wearable art.

This exhibition combines Indigenous art and fashion to showcase an exciting and innovative array of designs. The exhibition will feature collections by Lyn-Al Young, Grace Lillian-Lee, Babbarra Women’s Centre, Marree Clarke, Lisa Waaup x Verner, Hopevale Arts and Cultural centre and many more.
