27 Jun – 2 Dec 2012
Location: Yiribana Gallery
This exhibition explores the idea of home through the works of Aboriginal artists who belong to nations and language groups that today fall within the area defined as New South Wales. All of these groups have felt the full force of colonisation, which will forever inform their notions of home.
The works included provide diverse interpretations of home, from personal insights into living conditions, to rights to land and childhood memories. They provide commentary on life in New South Wales for Aboriginal people, an alternative history that is specific to this place.
