In Response, Carol McGregor, an artist of Wathaurung and Scottish descent, reflects on what was here, looked after and used as a resource before colonisation. Extending her research through discussion and consultation with Quandamooka and south-east Queensland Aboriginal communities, Response will be anchored by a possum skin cloak specific to Quandamooka Country. The exhibition also includes a new series of sculptural works.
An exhibition held in conjunction with National Reconciliation Week 2021 and NAIDOC Week 2021.
