Presented in partnership with Blak Dot Gallery as part of PHOTO 2O24, Future River: When the past flows (indoors) opens today at Counihan Gallery in Brunswick at 2pm.

Maree Clarke presents an extension to her 2O18 series, Long Journey Home, with eight emotive new photographs that fold into the exhibition’s theme of Indigenous understandings of colonial monuments as concealing the past. “Under our cities, the rivers and creeks still flow, and with them the Indigenous narratives of the past that will naturally become future rivers.”

Future River includes work by: Maree Clarke (Yorta Yorta/Wamba Wamba/Mutti Mutti/ Boonwurrung), Julie Gough (Trawlwoolway), Jody Haines (palawa), and Peta Clancy (Bangerang).
