Behind the Lines 2013Behind the lines

On display until 7 September

The traveling exhibition, Behind The Lines 2013 was created by the Museum of Australian Democracy and celebrates Australia's wonderful tradition of political cartooning. Published in newspapers, journals and online, cartoons are part of the public record of a nation's political life. Each cartoon is a snapshot of the major events including the Federal Election and personalities through 2013.  With wit and wisdom they provide an opportunity to reflect on the state of Australian politics and expose the robust nature of Australian democracy in action.

Origin of a CityOrigin of a City

On display until 26 September

'Origin of a City' is a collaborative exhibition between the Northern Territory Library and Darwin artists Gary Lee, Michelle Culpitt and Regis Martin. The exhibition explores mapping and naming practices, and how the city of Darwin got its name. Also screening is a short documentary film produced by Emma Masters. Curated by Koulla Roussos and staff at Northern Territory Library.

Origin of a City Exhibition is very fortunate to also include a map documenting Larrakia sites in Darwin Harbour. The map is a work in progress and is part of a mapping project conducted by the Larrakia Rangers and Cultural Knowledge Unit at the Larrakia Nation Aboriginal Corporation.
