Re-visioning Histories presented Indigenous and non-Indigenous artists from across Australia. Through a range of media, these artists created objects of attitude – propositions that acknowledged desecration and gave licence to contest the many histories and assumptions of Australia’s identity. Curated by Indigenous artist Yhonnie Scarce and Curator at Bundoora Homestead Art Centre, Claire Watson, the exhibition employed the colonial past of the gallery as its starting point to discuss the many potent issues around the history of colonisation and its impact on Indigenous Australians. The catalogue features a foreword by the curators and an essay by Genevieve Grieves. The featured artists are Fergus Binns, Megan Cope, Vicki Couzens, Nici Cumpston (SA), Will French (NSW), Dale Harding (QLD), Anna Liebzeit, Steaphan Paton, Steven Rhall and Yhonnie Scarce.$10

Bendigo Pottery is one of Australia’s best known potteries and the oldest working pottery in the country. Majolica wares of the finest quality, popular in Western Europe in the late 19th century, were produced by Bendigo Pottery for which it regularly won international medals and certificates. The nature of majolica means that no two pieces are the same, due to the intermingling of colours and the individual hand painting of glazes. Even though the pattern may be repeated, individual colouration of each piece is unique.
This 80 page full colour publication features a range of majolica wares produced between 1879 and 1911 and includes stunning photographs of the works from both public and private collections, including the National Gallery of Victoria.$10.00
