About this event

Queensland Aboriginal Creations: Agency and Legacy showcases over 150 works from a fascinating era of Queensland history. Queensland Aboriginal Creations was a State Government owned retail outlet launched in 1959, promising to develop economic opportunity for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities through mass production and retail of curios and artefacts. Despite decades of government control, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists were radically creative, finding innovative forms of expression and developing an industry. Featuring works from the Torres Strait Islands, Kowanyama, Pormpuraaw, Mornington Island, Hope Vale, Cairns, Yarrabah, Cherbourg and Brisbane.

Curator: Gretchen Stolte
