Welcome to Rainforest Country

Explore the Manggan Exhibition

Manggan – gather, gathers, gathering - is the first national touring exhibition of contemporary works by award-winning artists from Girringun Aboriginal Arts Centre.

Connection to country and traditional culture is at the core of this project, aimed at growing awareness of unique groups of Aboriginal people in the wet and dry tropics region of Far North Queensland.

 

In the touring exhibition, nineteen Girringun artists’ superbly handcrafted works were displayed alongside collection objects and reproductions of historic photographs from the South Australian Museum. Together, they provide a unique opportunity for Melbourne audiences to engage with the distinctive Aboriginal rainforest art traditions and culture of the Girringun region.

Mr Abe Muriata, a Girramay Traditional Owner, said “I am a Girramay man, an artist and a weaver. I make Jawun, the bicornual basket. My work is a culmination of ten years’ learning and it has essentially been a re-learning of a nearly lost craft.”

All items are now on sale for you to own. To view the works, simply click on the arrow above to enter the Girringun Aboriginal Art Centre's virtual gallery.
