Burrinja Access All Areas

After months of peering through windows, walking around construction screens and wondering “is that an exhibition on the walls?”, we are inviting you to satiate your curiosity and peer behind the sliding doors, in person. Yes, this is an IRL experience.

Burrinja would like to cordially invite you (and some friends) to enjoy a unique tour of our new & old spaces, the hidden & functional places that tell the story of where we have been and where we are headed, culminating with premier access to the current exhibition “Legacy: Reflections on Mabo”. 

Tour Sessions:

Tuesday 8 December - 10.30 am BOOKED OUT | 12.30 pm  | 2.30 pm 
Thursday 10 December - 10.30 am | 12.30 pm  | 2.30 pm 
Friday 11 December - 10.30 am | 12.30 pm  | 2.30 pm

Legacy: Reflections on Mabo

Legacy: Reflections on Mabo celebrates the man behind the game-changing Native Title Act, Eddie Koiki Mabo.

Co-curated by Gail Mabo, Dr Jonathan McBurnie and Kellie Williams (Director of Umbrella Studio contemporary arts), the exhibition brings together a selection of about 30 works by Indigenous and non-Indigenous artists in the spirit of reconciliation, twenty-five years after the historic achievement.

Each artist has responded to an aspect of Eddie Mabo that they are drawn to, whether it is his life, politics, activism, or legacy. The works come together in surprising ways with reverence, compassion, anger, sadness and respect, celebrating a man who was both a rebel and a dreamer.

Burrinja is the only Victorian stop on the exhibitions tour and is hosting a dual delivery of the works. Initially as a digital experience and then in 2021 in the Burrinja Gallery.
