Rabat: Australian Aboriginal textile art in the spotlight

The exhibition, which runs until October 1, features impressive hand-printed fabric hangings and a series of prints in which the artists pay homage to their ancestral lands and the sacred stories of their peoples.

Organized by the Australian Embassy in Morocco in collaboration with the Abla Ababou Gallery, this exhibition brings together the work of 17 Aboriginal women artists from different language groups, and reflects, through contemporary media, the richness of the millennia-old stories and artistic practices of one of the most remote regions of Australia. A bucolic and joyful universe that enriches the Moroccan designer Yasmina Dadi through a caftan made with an aboriginal fabric. A unique and original piece that weaves cultural links between Australia and Morocco.

Speaking on this occasion, the Australian Ambassador to Morocco, Michael Cutts, stressed that “Today, Bábbarra Women’s Centre (Editor’s note: Women’s Organization in Maningrida, Australia) supports more than 25 artists and is one of the oldest indigenous textile companies operating in Australia,” adding that this center remains a space managed by women, for women.
