Exhibition story

An installation view of many colourful earthenware pots on a white background.

Inspired by Bruce Pascoe’s bestselling book Dark Emu (2014), the exhibition ‘Seeds and Sovereignty’ draws artworks from QAGOMA’s Indigenous Australian Art collection to explore the deep knowledge and relationships Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have developed and sustained with plants and Country over millennia.



Seeds and Sovereignty is on display in GOMA’s Gallery 3.5 from 2 March to 8 September 2024.
