LINE OF BLOOD – Myall Creek Massacre 1838 – our shared history
Line of Blood – Myall Creek Massacre 1838 – our shared history focuses on the relationship between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal Australians at the ‘frontier’ in the early years of pastoralist expansion.
Our history is filled with whispers and partly told stories of similar events, but this one was different: it was quite well recorded; all but one of the perpetrators was tried; and seven white Australians were hanged.
The exhibition design is understated an elegant; an unexpected approach for such a gruesome subject.
Fourteen framed panels of screen printed image and text graphically re-tell the story of the events of the 10th June 1838 at Myall Creek Station, near Bingara, New South Wales and the aftermath.
Each pane: 70cm x 60cm (27.5” x 23.5”)
