26th January – 10th February
‘Discover Gippsland!’ will present a body of paintings that explore the commercialisation of Gippsland, Victoria. Inspired by the layout design of tourism magazines, these paintings were created throughout this region on Gunaikurnai lands. As Europeans settled this area, they committed atrocities against the Gunaikurnai people. This history is not always known or acknowledged amongst many Australians today. Tourism magazines present this landscape as undiscovered, demonstrating that the colonial doctrine of Terra Nullius is still in effect today.
