A Lightness of Spirit is the Measure of Happiness
Curated by Hannah Presley, A Lightness of Spirit is the Measure of Happiness celebrates the significance of family, community and humour in contemporary Aboriginal life. This major exhibition features 10 new commissions by artists from south-east Australia and beyond, in an exploration of everyday life and experiences of Aboriginal people today. Country music icons, queer identity, pop-culture and community leadership are referenced, as well as the legacy of ancestors and the importance of coming together to strengthen identity and connection.
