Through sewing and weaving, artists from New South Wales stitch together traditional stories and historical research honouring strong women ancestors. Their collaborative visual and performative works – which include decorated possum-skin cloaks, elaborate body adornments and poignant videos – connect women’s communal making and ceremonial business with the stories of grandmothers, mothers and children from ancestral times, colonial times and living memory.

Grandmother Lore is presented as part of Tarnanthi: Festival Contemporary Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art. Tarnanthi is presented by the Art Gallery of South Australia with Principal Partner BHP and support from the Government of South Australia.
