Her musical influences include; Tracy Chapman, Laura Marling, Bon Iver, Angus & Julia Stone and Patrick Watson. Mailaika’s debut album Would it be so bad was praised as ‘captivating’ and ‘brutally honest’ by Triple J Unearthed. She also uses her music to touch on societal issues and regularly collaborates with local bands for live shows and charity events.

      Together they will discuss Cara’s curatorial practice and the process of drawing from the gallery’s collection for Wirrimanu. This exhibition features extraordinary artists of the Wirrimanu (Balgo) community in Western Australia, which Cara will explore further, as well as how they provide an insight into the strength of practice in the community over the past 40 years.
