Curator Talk: Tui Raven
Hear from Yamaji/Noongar curator Tui Raven who has brought together Collective Ground — the first exhibition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander works acquired through AGWA’s COVID-19 stimulus package. It explores deep time and the stories that flow through the land on which we all live — as told through the artworks of First Nations peoples across the state.
Tui Raven runs her own business as a writer, curator, and presenter, and specializes in West Australian Indigenous community engagement. Tui specialises in conveying Indigenous focused content for audiences. Through careful planning she aims to convey messages which are culturally responsive, culturally appropriate, culturally compatible and culturally relevant.
As the Guest Curator of Collective Ground – connections between ourselves and places, Tui has attempted to portray the connection between WA Aboriginal groups and the interconnected way that Aboriginal people view the world through deep time. Collective Ground is also an opportunity for WA audiences to pause during this pandemic and understand their own connection to the amazing state of WA, land, Country and each other.
