Manly Art Gallery & Museum
Teena McCarthy is a visual artist and poet working predominantly in painting, photography and performance art. She is an Italian/Barkindji woman and a descendant of The Stolen Generations.
McCarthy’s work documents her family’s displacement and Aboriginal Australians’ loss of culture and ‘hidden’ history. While acknowledging the intergenerational pain of post-colonialism, she uses wit, humour and pathos to explore her own identity.
This exhibition is part of the 2019 Gai-mariagal Festival and Head On Photo Festival. Teena is represented by Art Atrium.
