The Wiradjuri artist gets a retrospective of 25 years of work

This retrospective of more than 100 works unpacks the diverse practice of Wiradjuri artist Brook Andrew, whose works span neon lights, inflatables, sculpture and installation. Many of his works recontextualise colonial-era archival materials, reframing the dominant narratives of Australia's history and the prevailing representation of its first peoples.
