Circles to us
circles to us is an online and irl Nexus Arts Gallery exhibition curated by Dominic Guerrera, who is of Ngarrindjeri, Kaurna and Italian heritage, exploring themes of Aboriginal gender roles and expectations.
Through photography, paintings and mixed media work, all sourced from the Flinders University Museum of Art, the exhibition interrogates concepts that surround stolen children, Aboriginality, and poverty, with an intersection of gender duties.
Dominic’s curator statement says the space is for Aboriginal people to explore how to preserve old stories and embrace new ideas but all are welcome.
“To Aboriginal people… I hope collectively the work will challenge us to think about the way gender is present in our lives and cultures,” he says.
“How we are informed by the past, women’s and men’s business, how we are reclaiming and / or carving out space for non-binary and trans Aboriginal people.”
