In 1987 ten artists set out to challenge perceptions of urban-based Aboriginal artists in mainstream Australian art society. They formed Boomalli Aboriginal Artists Co-operative as a new platform for local and regional NSW artists. Thirty years on they mark this milestone with works from founding members Michael Riley (1960-2004), Avril Quaill, Tracey Moffatt, Fiona Foley, Brenda L. Croft, Jeffrey Samuels, Euphemia Bostock, Fern Martins, Bronwyn Bancroft and Arone Meeks on view in ‘The Boomalli Ten’ exhibition curated by Djon Mundine. The show opens at 6pm on Friday 3 November at Boomalli, Leichhardt on until January 2018. The co-operative’s long-standing operations have, and continue to be fundamental in the support and encouragement of members past, present and future.
