As you walk through Belonging: Stories of Australian Art, you’ll find historical and contemporary works of art by Indigenous and non-Indigenous artists, to help us consider the art of the past and how this art might help us think about the present and our future. The display hopes to reflect the experience of all people who have called and continue to call Australia home — Traditional Owners who have looked after this place for over 65,000 years, and those who have arrived over the last 250 years. Recognising that linear narratives and histories reflect and reproduce the perspective of the coloniser, curators drew upon the First Nation’s notion of the Everywhen — an experience of time where the past, present and future co-exist. In First Nations cultures, time is not chronological or passing moment after moment. Instead, the Everywhen exists in an active relationship with the natural and ancestral worlds, where present and future events and experiences are shared with the past. Walk with us.
