About Kim Ah Sam

Kim Ah Sam is a Kuku Yalanji/Kalkadoon artist working across drypoint, etching, weaving, printmaking and paper making. Her weaving communicates a strong sense of self and belonging to Country.

Kim’s weaving process is often collaborative, involving storytelling and knowledge-sharing, a practice which is deeply embedded in First Nations communities Australia-wide. Kim has generously shared this activity as a means of understanding her practice and the skillful art of weaving. We invite you to create your own piece, reflect and experience the artworks on display.’

This resource is an outcome of Kim Ah Sam’s residency at Museum of Brisbane in 2020, supported by Tim Fairfax AC.
