28 May—6 August 2022

This is the first major solo exhibition of Lyndon Davis (Kabi Kabi).

Davis is an internationally acclaimed artist, educator and cultural performer. Born and raised on the Sunshine Coast, Davis' arts practice represents his deep connection to Country. Most recently, Davis has been making work that visualises the calls of different species on Kabi Kabi Country using cymatics, the science of visualising acoustic energy or sound.

The exhibition brings together painting, objects, moving image and sound to consider the way Davis’ practice is grounded in communicating the importance of custodianship and caring for Country.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander visitors are advised this exhibition contains the names and voices of people who have passed.
