Evidence: Brook Andrew

Must close 18 September 2016 Powerhouse Museum Free Entry

Evidence: Brook Andrew is an immersive installation that draws on the rich and varied MAAS collection to explore the theme of evidence.

Brook Andrew is internationally recognised for his interdisciplinary practice that often interrogates knowledge systems, history, identity and race. In Evidence, Andrew weaves together unexpected and perhaps overlooked objects and materials from our collection with specially commissioned artworks, suggesting different ways of interpreting objects and their history.

Featured objects include Governor Macquarie’s chair, a ‘black box’ flight recorder, a Maralinga souvenir clock, a Brown Bess musket, a surgical table and colonial breastplates along with 19th century ethnographic photographs.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples are advised this art installation contains names and images of people who have passed away and objects of cultural significance. Please be advised that some material in this art installation may not be suitable for children. Adult guidance is recommended.
