Join us to celebrate the opening of Kevin Gilbert: A Message to be Heard as we open a series of prints and poetry by the influential artist.
Kevin Gilbert (1933-1993) was one of Aboriginal Australia’s most important cultural identities of the late 20th century. Gilbert came to art and literature late in life, with his first artistic works, paintings and prints being made in prison. By the time of his death in 1993, he had established himself as an artist, playwright, poet, and political activist.
His work played a significant role in shaping Australian history during the 1970s and '80s, a very dynamic period in the long-term Aboriginal struggle for justice.
