The Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory present Therese Ritchie: Burning Hearts, a survey exhibition of one of Darwin’s most committed and socially engaged artists. The exhibition runs from 30 November 2019 through to 28 June 2020.
Therese Ritchie is renowned for her provocative prints that make fearless political and social commentary. Curated by Wendy Garden, this exhibition situates these prints within her practice more broadly and considers the fundamental role photography has played in her development as an artist.
Ritchie’s work can be both jolting and poetic as she seeks to uncover the truth amidst what she sees as the complexity of race relations and political deficiencies in the Territory over the past three decades. Bringing together photographs, some of which have never before been shown, with many of her well known works, this exhibition explores the richness and complexity of Ritchie’s art.
Therese Ritchie: burning hearts features work from Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory’s collection and includes a number of important loans from private collectors and institutions.
