Lost images of the Nacirema Tribe

by Darina Meagher| Lost images of the Nacirema Tribe
Exhibition runs 28 June - Fri 2 August | Artist Talk & Reception Saturday 13 July, 3pm
Important artefacts discovered in a disused attic space at Dunamaise have been curated by award winning artist Darina Meagher. The long lost images are presented to enlighten and expose an astonishing ancient tribe and their disturbing body rituals. They authenticate a major anthropological study* from the 1950’s by an eminent anthropologist. Come and explore these artefacts and their supporting materials which have baffled all local historians!
