Situated in the historical Lyons Cottage along the Esplanade, Aboriginal Bush Traders is one of Darwin’s most unique attractions. Our retail gallery exhibits a range of authentic Indigenous products, and is complimented by our Café, which focuses on using native Australian products and bush tucker in our menu.
Aboriginal Bush Traders is 100% not-for-profit.
Aboriginal Bush Traders is proud to present Gesture, an exhibition foregrounding the artistic practice of Indigenous artists with disability in the Northern Territory.
Featuring the work of artists from Bindi Mwerre Anthurre Artists (Central Desert), Free Space Studio (Darwin) Ngaruwanajirri Inc. (Tiwi) and the work of Dion Beasley (Tennant Creek), Gesture speaks to bold mark making and the presence of the artist’s hand. In another sense, gesture also speaks to forms of communication that are non-verbal and the importance of those forms for communities of people with disability.
