Curator Jessyca Hutchen discusses the Berndt Museum exhibition "Inhabiting the Trace"

Saturday 26 February, 2pm-3pm


Join Berndt Museum Curator Jessyca Hutchens, Curator of Inhabiting the Trace as she walks us through this exhibition that explores the iterative and responsive nature of printmaking. The exhibition brings together a diverse display of printed works by Indigenous artists represented within the Berndt Museum collections. Printmaking is explored as a process of re-visiting, re-working, and re-telling, carrying the traces of other forms – artwork, archive, story, memory. Embedded within the layers of ink, marks and impressions, dialogues emerge between artists, across generations, and with the past as an on-going material presence. Jessyca Hutchens is a Palyku woman and art historian who works on contemporary Indigenous art.
