Queensland artist Shirley Macnamara of the Indjalandji-Dhidhanu/Alyawarr people is an inspirational figure in Indigenous Australian art.

The exhibition highlights Macnamara’s unique sculptural pieces crafted from the spinifex plant and its runner roots covering the full span of her practice from 1997 to 2019. Evolving narratives and subtle changes in technique and materials are a hallmark of the artist’s practice.

An accompanying catalogue will focus on the beauty and diversity of Macnamara’s work and also reflect her views on her people’s culture and history, and her observations of the natural world.
