For the first time from the National Maritime Museum Collection, we bring together works by Zenadth Kes (Torres Strait Islands) artist Alick Tipoti.
With over 25 years of art practise, Tipoti is respected for his work in regenerating cultural knowledge and language. Guided by the traditional cultural practices of his people, Tipoti's storytelling encompasses traditional cosmology, marine environments and ocean conservation - focusing on what it means to be a sea person.
Mariw Minaral brings together some of the finest examples of Tipoti's unique and intricate linocut printmaking practice. The exhibition will also showcase his award-winning sculptural works, contemporary masks and film.
Tipoti is highly revered due to his sophistication and ability to spread his concerns and messages through his art, and has won both national and international acclaim.
