Euphemia Bostock: Fashion Collection 1987
In 1986, Euphemia’s designer garments were showcased in the Redfern Aboriginal Medical Service Fashion Show at the University of New South Wales. The following year, Bostock joined artists Bronwyn Bancroft and Mini Heath to showcase their collection of handprinted garments at the Au Printemps Department Store exhibition titled ‘Australis down under’ in Paris.
Euphemia’s work is also held in the collections of the National Gallery of Australia, Powerhouse Museum, Sydney and the National Museum of Australia. In 2001 Euphemia produced a collaborative Reconciliation Sculpture with artist Jan Shaw for Macquarie University’s Sculpture Garden.
ADC recognises the significant creative practice of Euphemia as the work and story of the artist is deeply connected to our history of Aboriginal art and design. As part of this years NAIDOC theme ‘Because of Her We Can’, we highlight the rich history of Euphemia for which she continues to inspire our future generations.
