From the diverse landscapes of Far North Queensland and a culture spanning countless generations, Manggan shares knowledge through the recent works of Indigenous artists from Girringun Aboriginal Art Centre, alongside collection objects from the South Australian Museum and Museums Victoria.
Manggan features an exciting range of artistic media, weaving together traditional and contemporary baskets (Jawun), ceramic fire spirits (Bagu), photography and film. Join us to celebrate the artwork of the wet and dry tropics.
