Terra inFirma

Exhibition and Shows

5 Mar 2020 to 23 May 2020

Blacktown Arts has announced the launch of Terra inFirma, an exhibition and performance program exploring expansion, voyage and discovery running throughout 2020.

Presented during the 250th commemorative year of James Cook’s arrival in Botany Bay, Terra inFirma reveals knowledge about the region and wider cultural histories. Featuring works by some of the country’s most exciting artists, this year long program examines how the arrival of Cook has impacted on Dharug Peoples and communities from the Asia Pacific region, now living in Blacktown.

Central to this program is the knowledge that this land was never ceded. Through personal journeys, intimate artworks and shared experiences, this program presents Cook’s arrival as an act of transgression, offering perspectives beyond the legacy of European expansionism.
