Tainted Cargo

 

 

This exhibition, by Jenny Dean and Gabrelle Falconer, explores layers of meaning behind objects that travelled on ships with the early colonists from England to the colony of Van Diemen's Land through artworks that create a narrative.  This narrative focusses on items that were brought by early colonists who found comfort in these familiar objects from their homeland. These items also, depending on the circumstances of the immigrant, symbolised their position and authority in the new colony. 

From Friday 8 April until Sunday 24 July 2022
