Elisa Jane Carmichael as part of OUTstanding 2022

February 8, 2023

From 7 May to 7 August 2022 Elisa Jane Carmichael presented two works, ‘To nurture‘ (2022) and ‘Gulayi for our Jandal (women’s bag for our women)‘ (2022) in Irish Lane, Brisbane City. Curated by Blaklash, Carmichael’s public installation of two large banners was apart of Brisbane City Council’s Indigenous Art Program exhibition, OUTstanding 2022.

The 2022 program acknowledges unsung Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander heroes, whose pride and dignity lift their community to their feet in a celebration of strength and determination, and are a catalyst to not only stand tall, but rise. OUTstanding also speaks to unresolved issues, conciliation, and truth-telling in this country. Including artworks from 12 of Brisbane’s most exciting First Nations emerging artists, displayed in light boxes, vitrines and as murals and project video works, integrated into the cityscape.
