Visit the Tradition Now exhibition. 18 Jun 2016–5 Feb 2017, Philip Bacon Heritage Gallery, level 4, State Library, Stanley Place, South Bank
Twelve diverse individuals share their stories through objects, photographs, artwork and memories. By telling the stories of the traditional custodians of this land and of culturally diverse Queenslanders, Tradition Now explores how many Queenslanders ‘arrive’ to this land, connect to or disconnect from family and tradition, and the subsequent impacts on contemporary family life. Look more closely into themes of dislocation, re-discovery, tradition, journeying, and spirituality. Enjoy the description of times past, intricate storytelling and the development of a new family heritage and tradition.
