Diamonds in the Rough
Boomalli's Annual Mardi Gras Exhibition Opening. Curated by Hayley Pigram.
Join us as we celebrate this Mardi Gras season by exhibiting the jewels of the NSW Aboriginal art scene.
The official opening night of Boomalli’s Mardi Gras Exhibition- Diamonds In The Rough will be held on Thursday, 20th February 6 - 8:30pm.
The exhibition will highlight the artists lived experiences as Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander LGBTQI people from our communities.
The night will be hosted and include performances by Nana Miss Koori.
Even when our power and beauty go unseen in plain sight, we shine as jewels. We are diamonds that hold strength and will not shatter like glass in the face of pressure. We are diamonds, strong, powerful and fabulous.
- Hayley Pigram, Curator.
