WHAT WE'RE UP TO

unsettling histories

WWG is 40-years old, and we are taking this opportunity to critically reflect on our histories. The gallery has been transformed into a community-engaged documentation of Indigenous arts presentation at WWG, which will be used as fodder for a conversation between artist Tanya Lukin-Linklater and curator Serena Kataoka about the implications of Indigenous art histories in the coming year.
