TREE of LIFE: a testament to endurance

‘TREE of LIFE: a testament to endurance’ is an exhibition of powerful artworks by leading Indigenous and non-Indigenous artists committed to the environment. The recent fires that raged across Australia record the greatest extinction of Australian wildlife and habitats since colonisation.

What remains of the natural world is the one beacon in a perilous age of drought, fire, floods and plague, exacerbated by the constant reality of climate change. Curated by Gavin Wilson, ‘TREE of LIFE’ drives positive energy towards the reclamation of diminishing natural resources.

Artists include from the APY Lands, Adelaide Studio Women’s Collective – Josephine Mick, Rhoda Tjitayi, Katie Curley, Barbara Baker, Margot Brown, Inawintji Williamson and Margaret Richards – together with Allana Beltran, GW Bot, Nicholas Blowers, Nici Cumpston, Tamara Dean, Rachel Ellis, Louise Fowler-Smith, Richard Goodwin, Nicholas Harding, Janet Laurence, Idris Murphy, Andrew Merry, Euan Macleod, Peggy Patrick, William Robinson, Shane Smithers, Mary Tonkin, Emma Walker, John R. Walker and Joshua Yeldham.
