The Flinders University Museum of Art (FUMA) has physically re-opened with guided tours of its current exhibition, ‘In the hold, Decolonising Cook in contemporary Australian art’.
Co-curated by Dr Ali Gumillya Baker, a multi-disciplinary Mirning artist and Senior Lecturer in Indigenous and Australian Studies, and FUMA Director Fiona Salmon, the exhibition features works by both Indigenous and non-Indigenous contemporary Australian artists that challenge how Captain Cook and Australia’s recent past have been represented.
The exhibition speaks to Flinders University’s recently launched Reconciliation Action Plan, which calls for deeper engagement with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories, cultures and knowledges. It comprises paintings, prints, photography, moving image and sculpture.
Bookings are essential due to physical distancing measures – find out more or register for a tour on the FUMA website.
