Barbara McGrady Photographic Exhibition

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 Rocks Discovery Museum. 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 was part of a celebration of NAIDOC Week 2020, ‘Always Was, Always Will Be’.
