An exhibition of emerging and established First Nations artists from around Australia.

(Re)telling: Stories of Country and Truth, is an exhibition curated by Muruwari woman Dr Virginia Keft. It brings together emerging and established Aboriginal artists from around Australia to present new and existing works that showcase their resilience, strength, and connection to culture. The exhibition of painting, sculpture, photography, weaving and textiles include works by Dennis Golding, Jason Wing, Virginia Keft, Edwina Green, Maddison Gibbs, Emma Hicks, Shana O’Brien and Nicole Monks. Using potent strategies of visual storytelling, the exhibition foregrounds deep connections to place, knowledge sharing, and resistance while weaving narratives of Country and ‘truth telling’ through a First Nations lens.
