Exhibitions: Saturday 17 August – Sunday 13 October 2019
Opening: Saturday 17 August, 2pm – 4pm
Marama Dina is an exhibition borne of research and engagement: ongoing research led by The Veiqia Project that aims to reconnect iTaukei (Indigenous Fijian) women with traditional cultural practices; and inter-generational engagement developed through eight workshops over a 12-month period which began in 2018 at C-A-C. Featuring new commissions by 10 artists from Australia and Aotearoa New Zealand, the Marama Dina exhibition sees iTaukei women take over C-A-C to share the exploration of cultural rejuvenation and celebration with the wider community.
Artists include: Margaret Aull, Torika Bolatagici, Donita Vatuinaruku Hulme, Yasbelle Kerkow, Joana Monolagi, Dulcie Stewart, Salote Tawale, Luisa Tora, Emele Ugavule and MC Trey aka Thelma Thomas.
Artist Talk Sunday 18 August,11am – 1pm with Dr Tarisi Vunidilo and Marama Dina artists.
Looking forward to sharing my multimedia piece which combines music, video and street art.
