Beyond the Dot: 12 years of Indigenous programming

10 February – 13 May 2012

Since 2000, the gallery and its Aboriginal Reference Group have worked together to promote, support and celebrate Aboriginal culture in the region.

Beyond the Dot recognised the significant achievement of that collaboration through selected works from landmark exhibitions such as A Possum Skin Cloak by the Lake (2011), Yapang marruma: making our way (stories of the Stolen) (2009), Stories: country, knowledge, spirit & politics (2006) and Passage (2004).

Artists represented included:

  • Jonathan Jones
  • Douglas Archibald
  • Mervyn Bishop.

A gallery project curated by Donna Fernando and emerging curator Maryanne Walmsley.
