NEW YORK, Aug 6, 2009 / FW/ — Inspired by the Australian Prime Minister’s public apology to the country’s Indigenous peoples for almost 200 years of grievances, Nomad Two Worlds is an exceptional presentation of Australian art and culture that supports a cause with profound global impact.
This art installation created by the acclaimed art and fashion photographer, Russell James and co-created with Indigenous Australian Artists is deeply rooted in the Australian Reconciliation Movement.
Nomad Two Worlds exhibits “apology in action” and the capability to motivate those cultures that also yearn for synergy. Through the exploration of the tree stages of cultural collision: past (innocence), present (Inhibition), and future (Discovery), the launch of Nomad Two Worlds raises awareness and inspires change in a meaningful effort to preserve culture.
From August 9-22, 2009 Keszler Gallery in Southampton will feature the Nomad Two Worlds Preview Exhibit, a sweeping, multidisciplinary collaboration conceived by contemporary art and fashion photographer Russell James and inspired and co-created by Indigenous Australian artists.
And on Saturday, August 8, 2009, from 5:00 – 7:00 PM, Russell James, Donna Karan & Nicole Trunfio will host the opening night reception at the Keszler Gallery, 45 Main Street in Southampton, New York.
Expected guests are Jason & Haley Binn, Jamee & Peter Gregory, Kelly Killoren Bensimon, Hana Soukupova, Liz Lange, Kelly Graham, John Barman, Liliana Cavendish, Carter Smith, Lisa Bytner, Ann Caruso, Nathaniel Kramer, David Lipman, Fulvia Farolfi, Roberta Myers.
