Teho Ropeyarn will attend the ‘Indigenous Printmaking Curatorial Workshop’ being hosted by the Kluge-Ruhe Aboriginal Art Collection of the University of Virginia. 


The Kluge-Ruhe Collection is the only museum outside Australia dedicated to Indigenous Australian arts and cultures and, thanks to a recent gift from Australian master printer Basil Hall, a leading centre for the study of Indigenous Australian printmaking.  


“I am thrilled to be travelling to Virginia to participate in an exciting curatorial print exchange with 12 professionals focusing on print development in Australia and the Kluge-Ruhe Collection in America. Kluge-Ruhe is an important institution and I’m keen to explore the collection, exhibition programs and artistic offerings at the University of Virginia and also in Washington D.C. I look forward to meeting and connecting with fellow First Nations curators in America to exchanges knowledges and learn more about print development practices internationally.”  


The workshop for 12 First Nations curators from Australia and the US has been funded by a major grant from the Getty Paper Project. The Paper Project assists curators working with traditional skills and generational knowledge by supporting initiatives that make these graphic arts collections accessible to wider audiences.
