NAIDOC WEEK: Big Yam Dreaming

The late Aboriginal artist Emily Kam Kngwarray’s monumental artwork Big Yam Dreaming represents a central aspect of Utopia community cultural heritage. Kngwarray’s country, Alhalker, is an important Anwerlarr (Pencil Yam) Dreaming site, the staple from which she takes her bush name, Kam (yam seed). Hosted by Wheeler Centre Director Michael Williams, panelists – including Blak Wave contributor artist Clinton Nain, food journalist and television personality Matt Preston, author Bruce Pascoe and the NGV’s Senior Curator of Indigenous Art, Judith Ryan – will present ideas, stories and observations inspired by Emily Kam Kngwarray’s Anwerlarr anganenty (Big Yam Dreaming).
