Island Fashion on Tour

A Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art (QAGOMA) regional touring project for children and families

Island Fashion on Tour features a range of free, hands-on art making activities created by QAGOMA in collaboration with Australian and Pacific artists Grace Lillian Lee, Maryann Talia Pau, Ranu James and Letila Mitchell.

Grace Lillian Lee's activity Get Your Weave On 2019 encourages audiences to use simple folding techniques with strips of brightly coloured paper to create wearable accessories, while Maryann Talia Pau and Ranu James' activity Ula Taim 2019 encourages the creation of elaborate neckpieces, wristbands and anklets using hand-drawn patterns and paper weaving. Letila Mitchell's activity Sasi, Pera, Lagi - Of The Ocean, Land and Sky invites children to create their own textile design using patterns created by the artist.

Until January 26, 2020
