Hey, while you are there you can also check out the exhibition. You’ll be happy you did. Click here to see the latest newsletter from the gallery…

Detail: What Time Collects installation, by Dea Morgan, 2017. Institute Gallery of the State Library

State Library of South Australia - Unsettled: Colonial Ruin in the Flinders Ranges
This exhibition shares stories from the Flinders Ranges through a mixture of media art, photography, archival imagery and documentary interviews. Unsettled seeks to move beyond what it describes as “the nostalgia typical of settler-colonial representations”, and includes striking portraits of Adnyamathanha people taken at the Nepabunna Mission by Charles Mountford in the 1930s. Read more here. Unsettled is at the Institute Gallery of the State Library of South Australia until May 17.
