SYDNEY CONTEMPORARY 2023

Emily Kngwarreye, Rover Joolama Thomas, Bill Whiskey Tjapaltjarri and Konstantina

7 - 10th September

Booth H09 Carriageworks Sydney

Cooee Art was established in 1981. From 2023, Australia’s oldest exhibiting Indigenous-focused gallery is solely owned by Mirri Leven. In its new era, the gallery will be run as a space of collaboration, working directly with First Nations curators, art centres, and represented artists.

Guarding for Change - Looking to the past and seeing ahead.”

Our booth will symbolise the passing of torches between generations. One side will represent the primary market gallery; the other will showcase the secondary market wing, with artworks consigned to our specialists from important collections across the globe.

Starting now, Leven will begin exhibiting non-Indigenous alongside our First Nations artists, exclusively through specially curated projects. These focus on technique and transparent dialogue, offering an opportunity beyond the ordinary commercial relationship between artist and gallery, fostering an environment of openness and direct exchanges between artists.

The result of the first such project will be presented here alongside paintings by Konstantina, the only exhibiting Gadigal artist of the Eora Nation, whose land is host to the fair and reflected in her work.

Across the booth, the secondary market is represented by the finest works of the movement’s figureheads, including Emily Kngwarreye, Rover Joolama Thomas, and Bill Whiskey Tjapaltjarri.
