Flinders University Museum of Art’s outstanding work has been recognised in the annual Ruby Awards, which honours remarkable contributions within South Australia’s arts and cultural sector.
The powerful exhibition Sovereign sisters: domestic work, presented at FUMA earlier this year and curated by Associate Professor Ali Gumilya Baker with Madeline Reece, has been nominated as part of Sister Exhibitions alongside Associate Professor Natalie Harkin’s APRON SORROW/SOVEREIGN TEA for Outstanding Work or Event Within a Festival. The exhibition was presented with Tarnanthi Festival and Vitalstatistix.
Another heralded FUMA exhibition, Bee-stung lips: Barbara Hanrahan works on paper 1960-1991, showcasing the late artist’s works as curated by Nic Brown, has been nominated for Outstanding Work or Event Outside a Festival.
The Ruby Awards, which are named in honour of the late South Australian arts patron Dame Ruby Litchfield, recognise artistic excellence, creative achievement, innovation, community involvement and inspirational leadership.
