IACA has partnered with the National Museum of Australia (NMA) to present the exhibition Belonging; Stories from Far North Queensland, featuring 415 new artworks from IACA member art centres, and produced during the multi-year arts development project coordinated by IACA.
Originally due to open in 2020, the exhibition has been rescheduled for mid-2022, when it will roll out over four consecutive shows – each running for three months – and taking an in-depth view of four art centres at a time.
Accompanying the exhibition is the publication Belonging, slated to become the seminal text on contemporary Indigenous art-making in Far North Queensland.

Pre-order your copy of the publication Belonging by contacting IACA at firstname.lastname@example.org. The book goes on sale in November.
The Belonging project was funded by the Federal Government’s Indigenous Languages and Arts program and the Australia Council for the Arts.
