CONTINENTAL DRIFT: BLACK / BLAK ART FROM SOUTH AFRICA AND NORTH AUSTRALIA



with Hannah Bronte, Tony Albert, Michael Cook, Paul Bong.



Continental Drift is the first major exhibition from a new Gallery program that celebrates and examines global black art and culture. Continental Drift highlights the shared experiences of contemporary blak/black artists from South Africa and north Australia. While both countries have different histories, British colonisation had dramatic effects on their black peoples, many of which continue to be experienced today.
