The exhibition traces cultural continuities and explores new modes of creative practice in south-eastern Aboriginal art and cultures.

Featuring a diverse array of materials and techniques, including painting, animal skin cloaks and textiles, bark and feather flowers, clay shields and digital prints, the exhibition brings together specially commissioned work by five cross-generational early career artists: Georgia MacGuire, Aunty Marlene Gilson, Mitch Mahoney, Josh Muir and Raymond Young.
