Join Bruce Johnson McLean (Curator, Indigenous Australian Art) to learn more about ‘Stories of this Land’, the first major retrospective celebrating the work and life of Goobalathaldin Dick Roughsey (1920–85). Roughsey was a figurehead and pioneer of Indigenous art and culture, and his paintings explore traditional practices, stories and ceremonies, the social effects of missionary activity, everyday life on Mornington Island and his travels through Cape York.
