Photographic works by Michael Cook

Opening Friday 18 May

The striking images of Undiscovered, by celebrated Aboriginal artist Michael Cook, offer a contemporary Indigenous perspective on European settlement in Australia. Depicting the shoreline, looking out to sea, the site that brought the first ships to Australia, Cook’s photos depict an Aboriginal man switching roles with his colonisers. Undiscovered ruptures the accepted notions regarding European ‘discovery’ of Australia, a land already inhabited by its original people. The exhibition asks viewers to reflect on our habitual ways of perceiving our history.

A nationally touring exhibition by the Australian National Maritime Museum, Undiscovered questions who really discovered Australia, while making reference to what was here, what has been introduced, and the effect this has had on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, their country and culture.

This exhibition is proudly supported by Sitzler.
