Unheard stories are given a voice in this powerful exhibition of scientific photographs and contemporary artworks, exploring the legacy of a 1938 anthropological expedition to Aboriginal communities.

Artist Vernon Ah Kee has drawn on photographs of his family from the Tindale collection to produce poignant works capturing the personalities behind the scientific images.

Transforming Tindale is a thought-provoking journey into the Tindale collection, what it means to Aboriginal people and its place in Queensland’s history.

Open daily, 10am–5pm.
