Elisa Jane Carmichael and Teho Ropeyarn
Parallel Currents

11 March - 23 April 2022

First Nations artists, Elisa Jane Carmichael and Teho Ropeyarn, have both recently come to prominence through their inclusion in major survey exhibitions such as the Asia Pacific Triennial, Tarnanthi 2021, Primavera and the Biennale of Sydney. Their work is now more frequently seen in a national and international context, often in exhibitions thematically linked to water, and this joint show offers an opportunity to engage with a selection of their recent works not previously seen before in Brisbane. Ropeyarn and Carmichael explore their personal connection to country, Injinoo and Quandamooka, respectively.

A number of these innovative works have returned from interstate and international shows, and this exhibition coincides with Ropeyarn’s participation in the 23rd Biennale of Sydney, rīvus and Carmichael’s inclusion in Primavera 2021: Young Australian Artists at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney.
