Void, curated by Emily McDaniel, is a group exhibition focusing on the work of Indigenous artists which explores the multiples ways in which artists visually articulate the unknown as space, time and landscape. The exhibited works span painting, photography, ceramics, video installation and works on paper.

This workshop will give students the opportunity to consider a variety of Indigenous artists’ voices from across Australia using the concept of ‘void’ as a starting point to delve deeper into the complexity of Indigenous culture.

The workshop will involve a yarning component led by an Indigenous educator and a making component where students can physically explore the language and concepts developed through the discussion.

Target audience: Primary and Secondary. Workshops are free and will be 3hrs in length (10am – 1pm, high school) or 1.5 hrs in length (primary school) but can be adjusted to suit the needs of individual school groups.

Location: Workshops will be held at UTS Gallery level 4 702 Harris St Ultimo, in easy walking distance form Central station
