The Cartier Foundation for Contemporary Art presents the first solo exhibition of Aboriginal artist Sally Gabori outside Australia.
Sally Gabory began painting at the age of 80
Considered one of the greatest Australian contemporary artists of the past two decades, Sally Gabori began painting in 2005, around the age of 80, and quickly achieved national and international artistic fame. In a few years of rare creative intensity, until her death in 2015, she developed a unique work in vibrant colors with no apparent connection with other aesthetic currents, particularly within contemporary Aboriginal painting.
Bringing together around thirty monumental paintings, the exhibition is produced in close collaboration with the artist’s family and the Kaiadilt community, as well as with the greatest specialists in Kaiadilt art and culture. They will be present in Paris for its inauguration to pay tribute to this artist whose work fascinates with its spontaneous, luminous and deeply original character.
