Wild Dog is an immersive installation and exhibition revealing one of Australia’s most precious storylines about our most misunderstood but significant cultural symbol – the dingo.

This is the first artistic outcome of a multi-year cultural maintenance project that follows the trade routes and storylines of the Dingo ancestral story across Australia – from Kaurna and Narungga country in South Australia to the Gulf of Carpentaria, and with cultural links stretching into Asia. The project, conceived and artistically directed by Kaurna/Narungga artist Jacob Boehme, connects First Peoples across Australia and Asia to share, preserve and maintain Wild Dog storylines.
