Summary

This beautifully illustrated publication will feature some 50 works drawn from public and private collections in an exhibition surveying the life and work of the late Mirdidingkingathi Juwarnda (Sally Gabori) c.1924–2015, the distinguished senior Kaiadilt woman artist from Bentinck Island in the Queensland’s Gulf of Carpentaria. One of Australia’s most extraordinary practitioners, Mrs Gabori was incredibly prolific over her short career. Her indefatigable zeal to communicate her stories, knowledge, and experiences accumulated over an incredible life spanning over 90 years from traditional life to the coming of the Australian frontier to contemporary globalised Australia, won her great admiration and has left an astonishing cultural legacy. Mrs Gabori’s works had undergone significant stylistic changes over the past decade and groups of works from these periods will be assembled to illustrate the development of Mrs Gabori’s practice
