Museum of Contemporary Art, 140 George Street
Follow young leader Albert Wiggan, veteran cattleman Kevin Oscar and Senior Elder June Davis through monumental battles to preserve their homelands.
Undermined: Tales from the Kimberley (2019) investigates the politics of a vast and as-yet unspoiled Kimberley region, currently under threat from mining, pastoralism and other large-scale development interests backed by state and federal governments. With the highest percentage of Aboriginal people living on Country in Australia, what will this mean for the Kimberley's custodians, lands and cultures?
