Mirdidingkingathi Juwarnda Sally Gabori

Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain presents the first major solo survey exhibition of Aboriginal artist Mirdidingkingathi Juwarnda Sally Gabori, outside Australia.

This exhibition at the Fondation Cartier presents some thirty canvases by Sally Gabori, including spectacular monumental canvases that punctuated her career, as well as three collaborative paintings done with other Kaiadilt artists, including her daughters. Thanks to some exceptional loans from major Australian galleries such as Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art, National Gallery of Australia, National Gallery of Victoria, Art Gallery of New South Wales and HOTA, Home of the Arts, as well as Musée du Quai Branly – Jacques Chirac, and generous loans by private lenders, the exhibition allows the public to discover an immense colourist whose corpus, profoundly anchored in the history of her people, bears witness to a remarkable pictorial modernity.
To coincide with this ambitious exhibition of paintings, conducive to contemplation and reflection, the Fondation Cartier, in close collaboration with Sally Gabori’s family and the Kaiadilt community, has created a website dedicated to the life and work of the artist. It showcases her rich work and the important cultural legacy she has left to successive Kaiadilt generations. Through countless documents and accounts collected in Australia for this exhibition, this site is the most exhaustive archive ever compiled on the history of Sally Gabori and the Kaiadilt people.
