Event description

The Blak Laundry Takeover Richard Bell's Embassy
11am Saturday 4 May

UniSC Art Gallery

Join local laundros Libby Harward (Quandamooka) and Dom Chen (Gamilaroi) for a Blak Laundry takeover—a warm and gentle blakwash to sort through your delicate whites, remove stubborn stains from your social fabric, and to help launder cultural capital (and raise real live money!) to support First Nations artists and community. The Blak Laundry is a functional laundromat, living artwork and ‘relational enterprise’ celebrating all things Blak. 

Bring your washing, bring your banggu ($$) and help share the load.

This agitation session will be held in Richard Bell's Embassy, an itinerant roving embassy made in homage to the audacity and strength of the first Aboriginal Tent Embassy pitched on the grounds of Parliament House, Canberra in 1972.

Presented for OCCURRENT AFFAIR, a UQ Art Museum exhibition touring with Museums & Galleries of NSW. This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through Creative Australia, its arts funding and advisory body.
