Eight Days in Kamay

When

Every day, 10am to 5pm Wednesday 16 December 2020 to Sunday 28 February

Cost

Free

In April 1770, strangers onboard the Endeavour appeared off the shores of Kamay (Botany Bay). This exhibition explores the eight days that followed and their continuing legacy.

Coinciding with the 250th anniversary of Endeavour visit, the exhibition features original sketches and journals from the expedition contextualised by Gweagal knowledge.

See a photographic display of the Day of Mourning protests held by Aboriginal people on the 200th anniversary of the visit.

View works by contemporary artists Karla Dickens, Daniel Boyd, Michael Cook, Jason Wing and Vincent Namatjira, which explore the continuing impact of the events of those eight days.
