Presented by the Adelaide Festival Centre, OUR MOB is an annual exhibition of South Australian Indigenous art that celebrates the power of creative collaboration across regional boundaries and between arts organisations. Country Arts SA is proud to have supported OUR MOB since its inception by the Adelaide Festival Centre in 2006. The ever evolving exhibition tours biannually throughout regional SA with Country Arts SA’s Visual Art Touring Program.
Our Mob 2012: on tour has been specially curated to tour through regional South Australia, including the Riddoch Art Gallery in Mount Gambier from July 13 – September 8 2013.
OUR MOB engages the public with reconciliation and inter-cultural understanding; a multi-faceted project with a visual art exhibition at its core. Every place has a story, and OUR MOB allows SA’s Indigenous artists to create visual expressions of their own narratives in a collective display.
This year’s exhibitionfeatures works of art by established, emerging and lesser-known South Australian Indigenous artists, including painting, illustration, and wood-carvings from Tjutjuna (Ceduna) Aboriginal Arts and Culture Centre, Iwantja Arts and Crafts, Ngura Wiru Winkiku Aboriginal Corporation, the Riverlands and metropolitan Adelaide.
OUR MOB has been a catalyst for the professional development of Aboriginal artists state-wide, giving them an opportunity to share their stories with each other and take home new perspectives on their work.
The success of the exhibition is dependent on the partnerships between the initiator of the project the Adelaide Festival Centre and Ananguku Arts and Culture Aboriginal Corporation, as well as Country Arts SA Arts Officers, Tandanya, and regional and remote community art centre managers.
