An exploration of gender in Aboriginal communities, this exhibition reflects on reclaiming and holding spaces for the representation and diversity of Aboriginal lived experiences. Informed by stories of the past, the exhibition explores themes of learning gender roles and responsibilities, and acknowledges Aboriginal gender diversity. Featuring nineteen artworks selected from the Flinders University Museum of Art’s contemporary Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander collection, Ngarrindjeri, Kaurna and Italian writer and artist, Dominic Guerrera curates a personal exploration of these foundational concepts and the intrusion of colonialism which inflects them. To further the dialogue invited by the exhibition, Guerrera has commissioned three emerging Aboriginal writers to speak powerful words of response to his theme.
