Curated by Djon Mundine OAM FAHA, ‘Three Echoes – Western Desert Art’ is a stunning exhibition exploring the poetic notion of echoes – how metaphorically and metaphonically we can echo a thought, a sentiment or a consciousness.

In the 1970s, Australian Aboriginal people from the desert began talking to the world through art, transferring their creation stories of the land and people to canvas. Now in the 2020s, this foundational echo is going back and forth. No longer a one-sided, outward calling, it reverberates multi-dimensionally within wider Australian and global communities.

‘Three Echoes–Western Desert Art’ is an initiative of Museums &Galleries Queensland developed in partnership with Karin Schack and Andrew Arnott, and curated by Djon Mundine OAMFAHA. This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through its Visions of Australia program and through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body. It is supported by the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland, part of the Department of Communities, Housing and Digital Economy.
