Mirdidingkingathi Juwarnda Sally Gabori
From July 3 to November 6, 2022
From July 3 to November 6, 2022, the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain is proud to present the first major solo survey exhibition of Aboriginal artist Mirdidingkingathi Juwarnda Sally Gabori, outside Australia.
Considered one of the greatest contemporary Australian artists of the past two decades, Sally Gabori began painting in 2005, around the age of eighty, and rapidly achieved national and international renown as an artist. In just a few short years of a rare creative intensity, and prior to her death in 2015, she developed a unique, vibrantly colorful body of work with no apparent ties to other aesthetic currents, particularly within contemporary Aboriginal painting. Bringing together some thirty monumental paintings, this exhibition is organized in close collaboration with the artist’s family and the Kaiadilt community, alongside the foremost specialists in Kaiadilt art and culture. They will be present in Paris for its opening to pay tribute to this artist, whose work continues to fascinate for its spontaneous, luminous, and profoundly original character.
Since 1994, the Nomadic Nights invite artists from the contemporary scene to flood the Fondation Cartier’s exhibition spaces and garden for one night.
