This exhibition takes us from rural southern New South Wales to the vast Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY) lands, which span the central desert region of remote north-west South Australia, over to the east Kimberly region of Western Australia, up to Arnhem Land in the Northern Territory, and across the seas to the Tiwi Islands, the Torres Strait, and beyond to Indonesia.

Through a diversity of materials and approaches, the works included in this exhibition articulate a sense of deep connection – to place, people or worldviews – drawing on multiple perspectives and cultural traditions from across the country and beyond. They reveal important expressions of cultural knowledge, commentary on difficult shared histories, evocations of landscape and representations of particular ideologies. Together, they highlight social, cultural and emotional connections that influence who we are and how we may relate to the world.
