Bringing together artworks by Indigenous and non-indigenous artists in the spirit of reconciliation, ‘Legacy’ celebrates the man behind the nation’s ground-breaking Native Title Act, Eddie Koiki Mabo (1936-1992). Mabo’s life, politics, activism and ongoing legacy are the inspiration for a broad range of sculpture, prints, installations and drawings co-curated by Gail Mabo, Jonathan McBurnie and Kellie Williams.
