East Coast Encounter
East Coast Encounter includes the work of Australian Indigenous and non-Indigenous artists and writers to re-envisage the encounter by James Cook and his crew with Aboriginal people in 1770. Cook's 1770 voyage has become central to narratives of Australian history and precipitated European colonisation of the country.
Exhibition commences Friday 23 September
