Gallery Lane Cove and Lane Cove Council presents Blak Mirror contemporary Aboriginal art exhibition.
Blak Mirror is a powerful exhibition featuring artists whose practices are driven by First Nations methodologies.
Biripi curator, Jason Wing has worked with a group of multi disciplinary artists whose work reflects their experience through a black lens. Working across a range of diverse mediums the artists works traverse photography, etching, installation, sculpture, painting and multi-media works.
Wing studied at the Saint Ignatius' College Riverview and has returned to Lane Cove to curate this evocative exhibition, bringing with him a group of dynamic Aboriginal artists from around these many lands now known as Australia.
