Noongar Country is an annual exhibition at Bunbury Regional Art Galleries showcasing the enormous range of artworks produced by contemporary Noongar artists.
The exhibition features works by artists at all stages of their career, from emerging to established practitioners, from traditional to contemporary styles and everything in between, offering audiences a glimpse into the richness of Noongar Culture today through the visual arts. Artworks across all mediums are represented including painting, printmaking, drawing and sculpture.
Noongar Country 2017 responds to the theme of Six Seasons, the natural climate which has shaped Noongar lifestyle for countless generations. These seasons are determined by the weather patterns on Noongar Country, rather than by a particular date and demonstrate a strong connection to the natural cycles of the land.
These cycles represent a balance between Noongar people and the natural environment, traditionally they shaped hunting and gathering practices to ensure nature was given the chance to thrive. In contemporary culture, these seasons represent the incredible body of knowledge accumulated by Noongar people and a connection to country which has remained unbroken for thousands of years despite European colonisation of Noongar lands.
