Tracing the Art of a Stolen Generation: the child artists of Carrolup is an exhibition presented by Curtin University, with the Carrolup Elders Reference Group. Presented as part of the UK/Australia Season.
This exhibition contains information about the Stolen Generations and the impact of invasion and colonisation and includes images and words of Aboriginal and other people who are deceased.
From 5 October to 9 November 2022, The Hunterian and the Memorial Chapel at the University of Glasgow are sharing the story of the First Nation children and families from Western Australia who have survived the impact of colonisation to find love, strength and resilience through the art of the child artists of Carrolup.
The story behind the exhibition is the ongoing search to find artworks that toured the UK in the 1950s and were then sold, to return them where possible to their families and their land. The Carrolup artworks are culturally significant for the Noongar people of Western Australia. The descendant families long to be reunited with their stolen children through their lost artworks.
For more information on Tracing the Art of a Stolen Generation: the child artists of Carrolup, please visit The Carrolup Centre for Truth-telling.
Entry is free, but if you are making a special trip, please contact the interfaith chaplaincy staff on 0141 330 5419 or email via the booking link.
