Legacy: Reflections on Mabo celebrates the man behind the game-changing Native Title Act, Eddie Koiki Mabo. The exhibition brings together a selection of over 20 works by Indigenous and non-Indigenous artists in the spirit of reconciliation, twenty-five years after the historic achievement.
Each artist has responded to an aspect of Eddie Mabo that they are drawn to, whether it is his life, politics, activism, or legacy. The works come together in surprising ways with reverence, compassion, anger, sadness and respect, celebrating a man who was both a rebel and a dreamer.
Exhibition Opens: Friday 6 September 2019
