Ian Fairweather is acknowledged as one of the greatest artists to have worked in Australia during the twentieth century.

After Fairweather engages with aspects of the artist’s extraordinary life, including his infamous 1952 raft voyage from Darwin to Indonesia; and his subsequent years on Bribie Island, where he painted his most important works.

This exhibition considers Fairweather’s legacy, as well as broader themes of journeys and cross-cultural connections, through the eyes of contemporary Australian, First Nations and diaspora artists.

Exhibition curated by Hamish Sawyer.
