Not Young or Free!

Responding to the 250 year anniversary of Cook’s arrival in Australia and its debilitating effects, this exhibition presents two key ideas tabled by Boomalli; ’We are not young: As Aboriginal people, we come from the world’s oldest living culture. We are not free: Since colonisers stepped foot on this land, Aboriginal peoples have faced the forefront of this so-called great arrival, which has led to devastation and mistreatment of Aboriginal peoples in Australia.’
