In coming months, UQ Art Museum will present Looking back & moving forward, a series of discussions and pop-up events to re-visit and ignite debate around unresolved issues surrounding historical repression, land rights, living conditions, police brutality, and racial persecution.
The first in this series is Presenting Maralinga: How are artists addressing our nuclear history? The panel discussion featuring visual artists Jessie Boylan and Judy Watson, Director of the UQ Anthropology Museum Dr Diana Young and visual artist and filmmaker Torika Bolatagici will take Mumu Mike Williams’ protest paintings as a starting point for a discussion about why visual artists, play-writers, filmmakers and choreographers keep returning to this history and its lasting impact on Aboriginal people and the land.
This event will start at the UQ Art Museum for drinks and nibbles at 6pm. You will have an opportunity to view The Dust Never Settles exhibition including the Mumu Mike Williams' protest paintings and at 6.45 pm we will move to the Sir Llew Edwards lecture theatre for the panel discussion.
