OLD QUAD Emu Sky image

Emu Sky

15 Feb 2022 – 30 Jul 2022

Curated by Barkandji woman Zena Cumpston, Emu Sky explores and illuminates Indigenous perspectives related to science, innovation, plant use, land management and agricultural practice. Through detailed research, art and storytelling this exhibition is a sustained interrogation of the western lens through which Indigenous scientific endeavour has been historically perceived. Emu Sky will showcase past, present and future conversations centred around Indigenous knowledge and practices, inviting the audience to recognise and question historical erasures and the contemporaneous circumstance they build and enable.
