Flesh and blood: a Sydney story 1788-1998

Artworks and objects tell stories of powerful colonial families and Aboriginal dispossession. 

This exhibition was based on well-known curator and arts identity Ace Bourke’s story of Sydney. Through paintings, artworks, heirlooms and anecdotes Bourke wove a tale of Sydney that connected him to his influential ancestors, including Governors Bourke and King as well as to contemporary Sydney, through images by leading indigenous and non-indigenous artists.

Presented in association with the State Library of New South Wales.

28 November 1998 - 14 February 1999
