Artists survey the impact of Cook and what he symbolises to First Peoples’ of Queensland. Curated by Janina Harding and Hetti Perkins, with works from art centres, independent artists and gallery represented artists. The exhibition reveals the Blak resilience of sovereign nations. Undercurrents is a platform for truth-telling, from an individual, family, community or First Peoples’ world view.
