A sneak peek into Truth: Now/Then/Everywhen

Truth: Now/Then/Everywhen brings together an impressive selection of works by artists such as Nancy Nanana Jackson and Judith Yinyika Chambers, Kaylene Whiskey and Robert Fielding and intersects true life stories with works such as Abbott’s Camp, 2016 by Sally Mulda – an Arrernte and Southern Luritja artist from the Central Desert region. Mulda’s painting practice is figurative, using text and bright colours to express brutal and dark truths about everyday life, documenting her experience and the surrounding social and political situations that her community experience.
