Daniel Boyd - BITTER SWEET

Daniel Boyd - BITTER SWEET

24 June - 10 September '17

Daniel Boyd was born in Cairns in 1982 and is recognised as one of Australia's most innovative and exciting young contemporary artists.

Bitter Sweet brings together major works that trace the hidden history of slavery in Far North Queensland that resulted in 60,000 South Sea Islander people being taken to work in sugarcane plantations from the mid-1800s and early-1900s.

The exhibition examines narratives of the Pacific Islands as a 'paradise', and the life of Pacific Islanders in relation to slavery and the sugar cane industry, and the effect on descendants' lives in Far North Queensland, including those of Boyd's own ancestors.

Daniel Boyd: Bitter Sweet will be officially opened by Tony Ellwood, Director, National Gallery of Victoria.
