Official catalogue produced to accompany the Australian Museum's current exhibition, Unsettled.
This land was not peacefully settled - Unsettled uncovers the untold histories behind this nation’s foundation story.
In this powerful exhibition and book title, First Nations voices reveal the hidden stories of devastation, survival and the fight for recognition. These first-hand accounts are presented through long hidden historical documents, artworks and never-before-seen objects from the Australian Museum collections and beyond. Featuring the work of contemporary artists including Ryan Presley, Tony Albert, Charlotte Allingham (Coffin Birth), Jai Darby Walker and Danie Mellor, the free exhibition and book title interrogate the lasting impacts of colonisation and the denial of Indigenous sovereignty.
First Nations Elders including Uncle Waubin Richard Aken (Kaurareg), Aunty Fay Moseley (Wiradjuri) and Uncle Noel Butler (Budawang), share their lived experiences.
