Event Dale Harding & Steve Kemp

Dale Harding & Steve Kemp

In Conversation

14 February 2019
6–8pm

Join artist Dale Harding (Bidjara, Garingbal and Ghungalu peoples) in conversation with Steve Kemp (Ghungalu peoples), a traditional medicine specialist from Woorabinda in Central Queensland.

Kemp continues the legacy that his father Tim Kemp created as a noted Ghungalu plants specialist, with his expertise in their traditional uses and in medicine. Harding and Kemp will discuss the interconnectedness of trees and other plants in Central and South-East Queensland; and how the legacy of such knowledges resist current forces of cultural and spiritual dispossession.

Current Iterations is the first survey exhibition of works by Brisbane-based artist Dale Harding. The exhibition brings together new and recent works by Harding, focusing on shared languages permeating landscape, bodies, and objects.
