Colony: Frontier Wars
Colony: Frontier Wars explores the period of colonisation in Australia from 1788 onwards and its often devastating effects on First Peoples. The period, that to many was the discovery of a ‘wondrous’ southern continent, was to others an invasion of homelands occupied for many millennia. This powerful exhibition reveals aspects of what Aboriginal people have experienced as a continuing consequence of colonisation, through works of art.
