An exhibition of indigenous art

During the final week of October, Mercedes me hosted a fantastic, multi-generational art exhibition from the Adelaide based and internationally renowned Pwerle Gallery.

In partnership with Vogue Australia, Mercedes me transformed into a hub of beautiful indigenous art, with pieces mounted along the street-front façades and lining the mezzanine and library spaces within the store.

Patrons were given an intimate look at the works from a number of Australian artists from the Atnwengerrp community north-east of Alice Springs, including one of Australia’s most collectible artists, Charmaine Pwerle.

Throughout a week-long exhibition, the highlight for many came on the evening of October 25th in which guests were welcomed into Mercedes me to browse and purchase any of the displayed artwork while enjoying world class hospitality from our partners at ST Ali and a live DJ.

The evening opened with a welcome to country and words from Mercedes me General Manager, Simon Johnson along with Pwerle Gallery Director Jade Torres, and guests reveled in the rare opportunity to chat face to face with some of the incredible artists behind the brush.

During the evening, guests were delighted with a surprise demonstration in which for the first time ever, Fred Purla and Charmaine Pwerle live painted together, and turned the bonnet of a 2018 Mercedes-AMG C 43 Cabriolet into a stunning, one-of-a-kind multigenerational artwork.

The Mercedes me team is thrilled to continue to share this uniquely commissioned piece, which is now on display within the store.
