As with other Kaiadilt women, Mirdidingkingathi Juwarnda Sally Gabori wove grass nets and carved coolamons for many years before she began to paint. Her first exuberant abstract paintings were exhibited in 2005 at the Mornington Island Arts and Crafts Centre, and soon attracted national attention. In 2016, the year after her death, QAGOMA honoured her with a retrospective survey of her work.
Know My Name is an exhibition in two parts at the National Gallery of Australia. It is the largest and most comprehensive exhibition of work by women, presented in a thematic rather than chronological form. It reveals relationships between the present and the past, relationships between artists, and common concerns.
