This community exhibition showcases Reclaim the Void, a bold cross-cultural project seeking to create a huge contemporary artwork assembled from thousands of recycled rag rugs.

Made collaboratively by people from across the globe, the rugs will be stitched together to form a pattern telling a Ngalia story of country.

The rugs will consequently be laid on country damaged by mining in the northern Goldfields.
