This exhibition explores notions of statelessness and nationhood
STATE OF THE NATION | CURATED BY KIMBERLEY MOULTON
Exhibition Friday 10 June – Sunday 10 July
Opening: Thursday 9 June, 6 - 8 pm
In a country yet to recognise its First Peoples through one or multiple treaties, where Aboriginal communities are forced to close and basic human rights are neglected, we are told to rejoice in being ‘young and free’. How do First Peoples maintain agency, rights and responsibilities to lands, and celebrate cultural practices when treated as aliens in their own territories?
This exhibition explores notions of statelessness and nationhood and the ways First Peoples maintain and assert sovereignty and challenge the status quo of colonial order. What is the state of the nation?
