This groundbreaking exhibition reveals the richness of desert life today. It tells the story of the Canning Stock Route’s impact on Aboriginal people, and the importance of the Country that surrounds it, through the works of senior and emerging artists and the stories of traditional custodians. It is a story of contact, conflict and survival, of exodus and return, seen through Aboriginal eyes, and interpreted through their voices, art and new media.
Yiwarra Kuju: The Canning Stock Route exhibition is a joint initiative between the National Museum of Australia and FORM.
