River on the Brink: inside the Murray-Darling Basin

This timely exhibition focuses on the environmental crisis of our time: the on-going devastation of the Murray-Darling

This timely exhibition presented in collaboration with Broken Hill Regional Art Gallery, focuses on what is the most pressing environmental crisis of our time: the on-going devastation of the Murray-Darling Basin.

River on the Brink is a creative response by leading indigenous and non-indigenous artists, committed to the well -being of the fragile interconnected riverine systems that make up the great Murray-Darling Basin.

With the Darling River teetering on the brink, it’s time to re-think the industrial agricultural enterprise responsible for much of the on-going environmental degradation of Western New South Wales.

Art has a way of penetrating the hearts and minds of people prepared to pause and look. Led by Barkindji artists, the powerful and compelling images on display reinforce the need to act now and save our vital waterways.

The artists featured in River on the Brink include Badger Bates, Elisabeth Cummings, Nici Cumpston, Ruby Davies, Bonita Ely, Paul Harmon, Julie Harris, Eddy Harris, Kim Harris, Waddy Harris, Brian Harris, Amanda Penrose Hart, Martin King, Euan Macleod, Guy Maestri, Ian Marr, Justine Muller, Idris Murphy, NOT, Ben Quilty, Luke Sciberras, James Tylor, John R Walker, Melissa Williams-Brown.

Curated by Gavin Wilson.
