This temporary exhibition at the National Museum of Australia explores Indigenous activism and celebrates the anniversaries of the 1967 referendum and the Mabo decision. The exhibition asks whether change really has come for Indigenous Australians and aims to inspire visitors to continue the fight.
Working with Maria Mosquera Design + Illustration, we created a visually striking exhibition with a sense of momentum. We used a simple, clean and strong colour palette of red, black and white. The bold red stripes on the walls and floor mark the limits of the exhibition, matching the strength of the protest banners.
A Change is Gonna Come contains a mix of large, bold works combined with smaller-scale objects from the Indigenous activists.
The exhibition opened in May 2017 and will run until 30 January 2018 in the First Australians Focus Gallery at the National Museum of Australia.
