Veiled Paradise Exhibition at QUT Art Museum

June 19, 2021 - August 29, 2021

Free

Veiled Paradise surveys three decades of Badtjala artist Fiona Foley’s practice. This leading contemporary Aboriginal artist’s work is informed by her ancestral connection to K’Gari/Fraser Island, drawing equally upon its serene beauty and the history of systemic violence and sexual exploitation perpetrated on its shores. Spanning over thirty years, Foley’s practice—from the founding of Boomalli Aboriginal Artists Cooperative in Redfern in the mid-1980s, to now, Veiled Paradise sees some of Foley’s most iconic works and some of her less-seen works put into the spotlight. This is the first major survey of the artist’s practice initiated in Queensland, and curated by an Aboriginal researcher, writer and curator—Angelina Hurley.
