Description

Already Occupied
Libby Harward

Panel Talk and Morning Tea

10am Sunday 18 August 2019
RAG, Cleveland

Already Occupied is an ongoing art project by Quandamooka artist Libby Harward which asserts Aboriginal sovereignty through temporary installations on Country. Using hi-vis and everyday traffic signage, Harward employs humour, language and materiality to spark conversations about Country and her connection to it.

This exhibition brings together Harward’s new site-specific makings, sound and documentation of ephemeral earth installations. Exploring the relationship between exploited land and the material from which colonialism is constructed she turns tools of occupation into a vocabulary of resistance.

This project has been assisted by the Australia Council for the Arts, and The Regional Arts Development Fund, a partnership between the Queensland Government and Gold Coast City Council.

An exhibition held in conjunction with NAIDOC Week 2019 and Quandamooka Festival.

Exhibition continues to Sunday 1 September 2019.
