Mapping the curious heart: Darebin Art Collection show

9 Jul 2022 - 17 Sep 2022

Mapping the curious heart presents key works from the Darebin Art Collection alongside new acquisitions. Bringing together the work of eight First Nations women with strong culturally led practices, we aim to provide a space for discussion around Australia as a colonised nation with an Aboriginal past, present and future.

Across moving image, photography, glass, and painting, the artists examine the key concerns of our times, encompassing gender, the climate, and the ongoing impacts of colonisation. Mapping the curious heart looks to our Collection to gain knowledge from the ways we gather, map, and pin down our ideas through art, and circle back to these stories over time.

Featuring Darebin Art Collection artists Hayley Millar Baker (Gunditjmara, Djabwurrung), Megan Cope (Quandamooka), Karla Dickens (Wiradjuri), Marlene Gilson (Wathaurung/Wadawurrung), Yhonnie Scarce (Kokatha/Nukunu), and Angela Tiatia (Samoa), with new acquisitions by Moorina Bonini (Yorta Yorta/Wurundjeri) and Deanne Gilson (Wadawurrung).
