A look at what’s on display at Yirranma Place.

The art of Yirranma Place anchors us in Country by honouring traditional owners, knowledge keepers, Elders and custodians. Their stories and narratives are embedded within the building and are part of the way in which we will engage.

Core Art Collection

Yirranma Place has developed a ground-breaking core art collection, with the first all-female Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander single permanent collection. The collection, which will be housed throughout the precinct, brings together inspiring Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women telling their stories in a world all of their own. They explore ideas of identity and culture, domesticity and belonging, scarred histories and alienation.

Public Art

Barkandji man Badger Bates created this work comprised of the gates and ceiling of the portico, for the main entrance of Yirranma Place. The magnificent forged-steel gates immediately enchant us with Dreamtime stories that arouse an emotional expectation and centre us in Country, with a welcoming arrival that connects everyone who enters to the site’s history as Gadigal land.
