Now, this fascinating and thought-provoking body of work becomes an equally fascinating exhibition, with selected stories from the book displayed at large-scale, with some accompanying objects from the QVMAG collection. Prepare to have your mind blown.

Ongoing, Gallery 9 + 10 – the reinterpretation of the QVMAG’s collection at Royal Park reflects our histories, identities and stories in a fresh and contemporary context. Welcoming back familiar favourites, Australian icons and hidden gems from the QVMAG stores, as well as major commissions by leading Australian contemporary artists, this exhibition explores the many facets of our communities and our origins in Northern Tasmania. Focusing on local Aboriginal cultures, colonial history and modern diversity, this exhibition encourages us to contemplate the ever-changing cultural landscape and our sense of belonging within it.
