Explore the stories behind 'Shell It: Boomalli at La Perouse Museum' with the exhibition's curator and discover the legacy of the shell making women of La Perouse.
Join Boomalli curator Kyra Kum-Sing on a tour exploring the artworks, significance and stories within this amazing collaborative exhibition.
Shell It features a display of contemporary and traditional artworks from artists across NSW Aboriginal Language Groups. Curated by Kyra, the show explores the diversity within our communities through sharing visual stories of lived experiences, memories and knowledge of the past, present and what the future holds.
Kyra invites you to join her on a journey through incredible creativity, history and community, and to share stories that have been passed down from generation to generation. The tour will provide a connection to the Museum's main themes and the shellwork on display in our permanent galleries.
