Women's Work

Open daily 10am - 5pm

Main foyer, free entry.

Women’s Work celebrates the diverse and often unheralded leadership of Aboriginal women in our community.

This exhibition of photographs by renowned photographer Wayne Quilliam, curated by the Museum’s Rebecca Richards, represents a way of honouring Aboriginal Australians, as we collectively begin to define a shared vision of a national day that is worth celebrating together. NAIDOC Week provides just such a time of universal celebration in which all Australians can honour our shared heritage and celebrate the oldest living culture in the world.

A limited-edition of each print is available for sale for a limited time, with 100% of the profits going to the acquisition, preservation and display of Aboriginal women’s culture within the South Australian Museum. The first project supported by these profits is the Story Necklace, a collaborative exhibition with Ikuntji Artists which will open in December 2020. To purchase these prints visit Sparkke's website.

This exhibition has been made possible by support from Sparkke, Professor Wayne Quilliam, Rebecca Richards, and the South Australian Museum. Very special thanks to all of the portrait subjects.
