ART FORUM: Public floor talk by Maria do Céu Lopes da Silva
Location: CDU Art Gallery, Orange 12, Casuarina Campus
Wednesday 7 June

CDU Art Gallery invites you to a public floor-talk by Maria do Céu Lopes da Silva, as she discusses her impressive collection of sculptures that are included in The Sculptures of Atauro Island.

Maria do Céu Lopes da Silva, born and raised on Atauro Island, will tell how she came to collect these distinctive works of art, from 1999 onwards, following the end of Indonesia’s occupation of Timor-Leste.

The exhibition is presented by Charles Darwin University, the Secretariat of State Art and Culture of Timor–Leste and Timor Aid from 16 March – 15 July 2017.
