kanalaritja: An Unbroken String
A national touring exhibition celebrating Tasmanian Aboriginal shell stringing practices, past, present and future. Kanalaritja will offer visitors a unique glimpse into one of the most culturally significant and closely guarded traditions of the Tasmanian Aboriginal community. The exhibition will feature historical Tasmanian Aboriginal shell necklaces from the TMAG collection, alongside contemporary pieces from today’s makers. This project has been assisted by the Australian Government’s Visions of Australia program.
