Free event
Location: UQ Art Museum, St Lucia campus

How we remember tomorrow celebrates storytelling across generations, through oceans and waterways and transcending eras and perspectives. Featured artists understand the watery spaces of our planet as ancestral archives: sources of knowledge that carry stories and cultural practices. Alongside their kin, they honour intergenerational narratives that are disseminated along ocean currents despite ongoing colonial legacies of forced displacement, homeland dispossession, indenture and the loss or dormancy of vital cultural practices.

How we remember tomorrow is the fourth exhibition presented as part of the long-term research initiative Blue Assembly, which calls attention to the ways in which oceanic spaces are inextricable to the survival of all species.
