About this event

In this timely exhibition of new work, Mildura-based artist Heather Lee visually probes beyond the superficialities of the humble, but often revered, cricket ball and pays tribute to the Aboriginal cricketers who made up the first Australian team to tour England in 1868.
Since 2007, the conceptual basis of Lee's creative practice has been strongly influenced by her research into sports' sociology and the way Australia's historical foundations have permeated through to the present time. Inspired by the experiences of Australia's Aboriginal cricket team in the mid-nineteenth century, Lee's work incorporates concepts that intersect local history, Indigenous history, personal narrative and sport.

Presented by:
