WILMA TABACCO

Dr Wilma Tabacco has exhibited extensively in Australia and overseas since 1981.

Her work has been acquired by major museums including National Gallery of Australia, National Gallery of Victoria and Museum of Modern Art (Heide) and by private collectors in Australia, Italy, France and USA. She has been the recipient of several grants including the Australia Council, an AsiaLink residency in Seoul, Korea and grants from Art Victoria and Nets Victoria.

Born in Italy, Wilma continues to maintain cultural, historical and family links with her ancestral origins but she values and enjoys the opportunities and life style provided by Australia, her home since childhood.

Wilma has been an arts educator for most of her adult life working in a variety of tertiary institutions. She is the founding co director of Langford 120, a commercial gallery complex providing a variety of exhibition opportunities for established and emerging artists.

Wilma’s Art Forum presentation ARCHEOLOGICAL DIG, will sift through events and processes embedded in her 30-year practice, that on reflection reveal significant threads, pivotal moments and meaningful connections.
