This gathering of women&rsquo;s work celebrates the power of First Nations art as a continuing presence of culture. The featured fibre and textile-based works are grounded in the widespread practice of weaving. The use of materials and techniques woven, and the forms created, evoke memory and experiences of people and place across time. Across the space, the works resonate with one another: prints are about history and weaving; weavings are about stories; stories are an ode to Ancestors and Country; and Country is embodied in each work. This collection lives beyond the gallery into the world. In making and sharing, artists regenerate and reaffirm the links between the past and those to come.
