Exhibition: ‘Guwayu – For All Time’

Fri 3 May - Sun 28 July


This powerful exhibition of First Nations artists illuminates and honours the past we have inherited and looks to the future we will leave behind.

Guwayu: for all time will showcase the meta-temporal nature of Australia’s history where the past, present and future exist together.

The exhibition will examine dispossession, Indigenous activism, organisation and resistance, marking hugely significant events for Aboriginal people, including the declaration of martial law in 1824 in our region and the launch of Australia’s first united and politically organised Aboriginal activist group, the Australian Aboriginal Progressive Association (AAPA) in 1924. By walking backwards into the future, Guwayu: for all time lays bare intergenerational trauma whilst celebrating the resilience, strength and aspirations of First Nations peoples.

The exhibition will contain works by some of Australia’s most renowned First Nations artists including Tony Albert, Nicole Chaffey, Jo Clancy, Lorraine Connelly-Northey, Karla Dickens, Blak Douglas, Fiona Foley, Juanita MacLaughlan, Danie Mellor, Vincent Namatjira, Joel Sherwood Spring, Jason Wing and Judy Watson.

Opening Friday, 3 May 2024 from 6pm to 8m.
