Yiloga! Tiwi Footy Art Exhibition

Chris Barnett, President of the KI football Association, will be opening the exhibition on Friday 5th June, 5.30pm.

You, your families and friends are all welcome.

Yiloga! is an exploration of football and the importance of football

in the life of an Indigenous community.

This exhibition explores the links between sport, culture and art

resonating deeply within the collective Australian psyche.

This series of documentary style photographs deals with the place of footy in Tiwi culture and explores not only the Tiwi communities’ passion for the game of AFL Football but also its positive influence on life in the community.

The colour and excitement of ‘footy’ is captured as well as some of the startling history of the islands over the last 5 years.

. Artback NT is proud to present this touring exhibition with thanks to the Photographer’s for the loan of these works.

The footy season is well underway so why not have a whole weekend of footy with our local footy games on Saturday and come and enjoy this exhibition on Sunday!
