Homecoming of Artwork From the Stolen Generation

Friday 10th May / presented by Graeme Watson

In 1966 a selection of Noongar art created by children who were part of Australia’s ‘Stolen Generations’ was given to a New York University.

The artwork was donated by former Colgate University student and well-known art collector Herbert Mayer who had had purchased the works from the Carrolup Native School and settlement.

Now they’re coming back.

In an example educational collaboration, Colgate University is returning the indigenous artworks to Curtin University.

The art’s a symbol of Noongar culture, but it has also been a significant part of the heritage and history of the region – also influencing the work of several well-known contemporary Australian artists.

John Curtin Gallery Director Chris Malcolm’s with me to discuss the significance of the transfer and homecoming of the paintings.
