Yhonnie Scarce: The Light of Day

This is the largest-ever ensemble of collected glass and mixed-media works in Australia by Kokatha and Nukunu artist Yhonnie Scarce.

Scarce is known for her large-scale, glass installations, archival imagery and found objects that reveal hidden stories of Australia’s foray into nuclear testing and the impacts of colonisation on First Nations people.

The exhibition includes key works produced across Scarce’s career from the early 2000s to the present day.
