Barbara McGrady Photographic Exhibition at Cleland Bond

Warriors, activists, Elders, dancers. Let Aunty Barbara McGrady guide you through the true experiences of First Nation people.

Barbara McGrady is a pioneering Gomeroi/Gamilaraay Murri yinah photographer who has documented the Aboriginal experience in urban areas in Australia over a prolific 30-year career. More than almost any living artist her work speaks to what it means to be an Aboriginal person surviving and thriving in a colonial world.

Nine of her works telling the stories of Aborignal warriors, elders, dancers and everyday people will be displayed on large photographic panels in the Cleland Bond Foyer – Playfair Street, The Rocks from 9 November. Inserted aboriginal language will accompany the works to encapsulate the significance of retaining Aboriginal cultural identity in a modern, urban world.

‘If the Language is strong, then Culture is strong’. (ATSIC 2000) ​

The exhibition is free and open to the public as part of a celebration of NAIDOC Week 2020, ‘Always Was, Always Will Be’.
