ART ON THE MOVE touring exhibition Yagu Gurlbarl (Big Secret) presents a collection by renowned artist Julie Dowling. The exhibition centres on the theme of slavery of First Nations Peoples in Australia, in past centuries and current Australian society. The exhibition presents a series of highly decorated figurative artworks that draw in and engage the viewer. Closer inspection reveals a strong political edge challenging the myth that First Nations Peoples were/are lazy and a drain on society. The beauty presented in the works becomes a metaphor for the resilience and wisdom of First Nation’s Peoples to overcome the narrow narrative that has mythologised colonisation.

 

Exhibition opens:  Friday 5 July 2019
