Transforming Tindale exhibitionTransforming Tindale

Unheard stories are given a voice in this powerful exhibition of scientific photographs and contemporary artworks, exploring the legacy of Norman Tindale's 1938 anthropological expedition to Aboriginal communities. Artist Vernon Ah Kee has drawn inspiration from photographs of his family in the Tindale Genealogical Collection to produce poignant works capturing the personalities behind the scientific images. Tindale’s photographs are presented in two beautifully bound books alongside digitised images of Vernon Ah Kee’s artworks that are woven within the digital stories as part of the travelling exhibition.

Transforming Tindale is a thought-provoking journey into the Tindale collection, what it means to Aboriginal people and its place in Queensland's history.
