Celebrating First Nations artists in new open-air lightbox gallery

Monday 1 May 2023

AMP Lane in Albury is set to be transformed into an open-air lightbox gallery during NAIDOC Week in July, featuring artworks from First Nations artists.

AlburyCity is calling for expressions of interest from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists to create a series of five new artworks, exploring the diverse identities and cultures of First Nations people.

The pieces from four chosen artists will be digitally printed onto lightboxes, which will sit on the exterior walls of the lane from Dean St to Smollett St. The exhibition will be ongoing, with works in place for four to six months at a time.

Artists are required to submit a biography, examples of previous works, and a proposal and/or concepts for their submission before 5pm Sunday 7 May.

All 2D forms of art are welcome, including print, photography, painting, text-based work, digital illustration, and mixed medium, and more.

AlburyCity Mayor Kylie King said the project is an opportunity to celebrate our history, culture and the arts.

"Albury has a diverse Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community, and this is a chance to celebrate our rich heritage and culture, and showcase the amazing talents of our creative community, creating a colourful and vibrant space right in the heart of our CBD," she said.
