Exploring links between botany, land, and cultural identity, Kurlkayima Ngatha—Remember Me is an exhibition examining Pilbara Aboriginal societies’ methodology of plant use and knowledge systems. Kurlkayima Ngatha—Remember Me encompasses a range of art forms resulting from a project developed in partnership with IBN Corporation and the Yinhawangka, Banyjima, and Nyiyaparli people, and proudly supported by BHP Billiton. Participating artists include Fiona Foley, Eunice Napanangka Jack and Philippa Nikulinsky AM.
Exhibiting alongside is a solo exhibition of hand painted linocut prints from local artist Amanda Firenze Pentney, My Town, inspired by the last ten years spent living in Port Hedland. The artist combines familiar scenes of Hedland life with personal stories from her time as a resident; giving visitors a glimpse into community life and locals the opportunity to connect over shared experience.

Exhibition runs until August
