Legacy: Reflections on Mabo

5 July - 11 August

Marion Gaemers, 2018, Octopus, Beach Ephemera & Milk Crate, Dimensions

Legacy: Reflections on Mabo celebrates the man behind the game-changing Native Title Act, Eddie Koiki Mabo, and the ongoing influence and impact he has had on Australian society and culture. This travelling exhibition brings together 26 Indigenous and non-Indigenous artists in the spirit of reconciliation, 27 years after this historic achievement. Each artist has responded to an aspect of Mabo they were drawn to, whether it was his life, politics, activism or legacy. The artworks come together in surprising ways, with reverence, compassion, anger, sadness and respect, celebrating a man who was both a rebel and a dreamer.
