Chris Malcolm, and Michelle Broun consider several artworks from the Curtin University Art Collection which provide insights into the lives of Stolen Generations children separated from their parents under racist Government policy.
Michelle will survey two artworks created by Revel Cooper during his incarceration at the Carrolup Native Settlement in 1949. Chris will discuss an artwork by Sandra Hill, a member of the Stolen generation and influenced by Revels’ art and story. Both will explore the opportunities these artworks and voices offer for healing people and the land in Australia, and in the context of John Curtin Gallery’s Centre for Truth-telling development.
