SAM LEACH / 6600+
Curated by Vanessa Gerrans
Warrnambool Art Gallery, VIC
Until 11 June 2018

6600+ is an abstract representation by Sam Leach of Budj Bim as not only Australia’s earliest and largest aquaculture system but also as a cultural and sacred space that symbolises and celebrates the ingenuity and the ongoing Gunditjmara connection to land. The Gunditjmara have been tireless in their advocacy and ongoing commitment for recognition of the international significance of this remarkable site and we encourage everyone to learn from the rich traditions and history of Budj Bim as a significant story in the narrative of South Western Victoria.
