galang 02 is grounded by connection to Place, Earth, Country and Land. Gail Mabo reflects on her father Eddie Koiki Mabo’s landmark claim to Mer and how profound ties to Place influence her artwork, while Lisa Hilli explores unspoken bonds with her Papua New Guinean family and environment. New contributors Beaska Niillas and Denilson Baniwa take intimate journeys on Country, as does Brook Garru Andrew in his visit on Country with kin and elders to highlight the importance of trees.
The galang collective convenes regularly to discuss the role of museums and other cultural institutions in the past and present colonisation of First Nations people.
