Maluw Adhil Urngu Padanu Mamuy Moesik (Legends from the deep sitting peacefully on the waters)

Exhibition Opening

27 January 2023
6.00PM–9.00PM

Please join us for the opening of Maluw Adhil Urngu Padanu Mamuy Moesik (Legends from the deep sitting peacefully on the waters) – Selected works from the 23rd Biennale of Sydney: rīvus. Anchored by a new commission from the Torres Strait 8, this exhibition explores how our connections to the natural world could prioritise care for Country and pursue justice in an epoch of rising temperatures and seas.

To celebrate the Torres Strait 8’s hybrid art-as-protest piece created as part of the Our Islands Our Home campaign, there will be storytelling by Yessie Mosby and Danny Billy, a performance by Boigu Island dance troupe Kutaw Zoeru, and tunes spun by DJ RedBelly throughout the evening.

Participants in the exhibition include Zheng Bo, Casino Wake Up Time, Jessie French, Clare Milledge, Marjetica Potrč with Ray Woods, Duke Riley, the Torres Strait 8, and Hanna Tuulikki.
