The Government will provide more than $200,000 to support an exhibition in Singapore of unique Indigenous sculptures.
28 April 2017
The exhibition, called Au Karem ira Lamar Lu, will be on display at the Asian Civilisations Museum and will feature sculptures of marine animals from the Erub Arts Centre. These are created from drifting commercial fishing nets that have been discarded or lost at sea, called ghost nets.
The Erub Arts Centre is based on Darnley Island, one of the most remote communities in Australia.
The support for the exhibition is part of $400,000 funding for international arts activities recommended by the Australia–Singapore Arts Group.
These initiatives are pivotal to strengthening Australia’s international arts and cultural engagement with Singapore.
