Opening Night: The Power of Creativity: My Horizon Line - A retrospective of work by Jeffrey Samuels
Boomalli Aboriginal Artists Co-operative will present the exhibition “The Power of Creativity: My Horizon Line”, a retrospective of work by Jeffrey Samuels, curated by Dr. Bronwyn Bancroft.
Jeffrey is a Founding Member of Boomalli Aboriginal Artists Co-operative, and through this exhibition we will be celebrating his dedication to his artistic practice across 4 decades.
The exhibition will highlight Jeffrey’s life as an Artist and Stolen Generation member, and what that journey represents not only to Jeffrey and his family but also to the Australian people.
Jeffrey has continued to connect to his culture, mentor younger artists, stay engaged and active in the LGBTQIA+ community and keep creating his visual narrative. Jeffrey has driven change in this country around racially motivated perceptions and ignorance of what it is to be an Aboriginal Artist.
The exhibition will be comprised of key works from major public and private collections including the Art Gallery of NSW, National Art School, City of Sydney, Artbank, Aboriginal Affairs NSW and International Convention Centre Sydney.
Throughout his life, Jeffrey has demonstrated incredible tenacity in the face of adversity and he continues to make an impact on the Aboriginal and Australian art scene.
Join us at Boomalli for the opening night on Thursday 9th November from 6pm to celebrate the career and talent of Jeffrey Samuels.
