Shirley Macnamara
Dyinala, Nganinya
Sep 2019 - Mar 2020

Queensland artist Shirley Macnamara of the Indjalandji-Dhidhanu/Alyawarr people is an inspirational figure in Indigenous Australian art. The exhibition highlights Macnamara’s unique sculptural pieces crafted from the spinifex plant and its runner roots covering the full span of her practice from 1997 to 2019. Evolving narratives and subtle changes in technique and materials are a hallmark of the artist’s practice.
