Response is an exhibition by Carol McGregor, an artist of Wathaurung and Scottish descent, reflecting on the 250th anniversary of British explorer James Cook and his voyage to Australia. McGregor’s research into Response involved discussion and consultation with Quandamooka and southeast Queensland Aboriginal communities. This sits alongside her own personal reflections on what was here, looked after and used as a resource before colonisation. The exhibition will be anchored by a possum skin cloak and include a series of sculptural works and works on paper.
An exhibition held in conjunction with National Reconciliation Week 2020.
