Lola Greeno: Cultural Jewels
ADC On Tour: Australian Design Centre national touring exhibition
2 March – 15 April 2018
Lola Greeno: Cultural Jewels is the eighth iteration of Australian Design Centre’s Living Treasures: Masters of Australian Craft series - a biennial recognition and national tour of an iconic artist whose body of work epitomises the best of various Australian craft fields.
Lola Greeno is Australian Design Centre’s first Indigenous Living Treasure and is a shell worker and artist from Tasmania, whose career spans 30 years. Greeno’s award-winning talent in shell- working is magnificently displayed in the exhibition. 50 highly visual and textural works uniquely champion the traditions and culture of the Indigenous women of Tasmania’s Cape Barren and Flinders Islands.
