Catch Up: Instagram Live with Aboriginal Australian artist Yhonnie Scarce

Last week was National Reconciliation Week, (NRW) a time for all Australians to learn about our shared histories, cultures, and achievements, and to explore how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia. In honour of NRW, the Season hosted an Instagram Live with Aboriginal Australian artist Yhonnie Scarce ahead of her exhibition at Ikon Gallery in Birmingham – opening on 10 June 2022.

Born in Woomera, South Australia, Scarce belongs to the Kokatha and Nukunu peoples. Working with glass, she explores the political nature and aesthetic qualities of the material – in particular corresponding to the crystallisation of desert sand as a result of British nuclear tests on her homeland during 1956-63. Organised by Ikon Gallery and TarraWarra Museum of Art with consultant curator Hetti Perkins.
