Legacy: Reflections on Mabo

Museums & Galleries Queensland, in partnership with Umbrella Studio contemporary arts, Townsville, QLD, is seeking expressions of interest for an exciting new touring exhibition titled Legacy: Reflections on Mabo.

Legacy: Reflections on Mabo celebrates the man behind the game-changing Native Title Act, Eddie Koiki Mabo. Co-curated by Gail Mabo and Jonathan McBurnie (Director of Umbrella Studio), the exhibition brings together a selection of about 30 works by Indigenous and non-Indigenous artists in the spirit of reconciliation, twenty-five years after the historic achievement.

Each artist has responded to an aspect of Eddie Mabo that they are drawn to, whether it is his life, politics, activism, or legacy. The works come together in surprising ways with reverence, compassion, anger, sadness and respect, celebrating a man who was both a rebel and a dreamer.

Legacy: Reflections on Mabo will launch at Umbrella Studio Contemporary Arts in Townsville, Mabo’s home for many years, on Mabo Day 2019 (3 June).
