Insurgence at Museum of Australian Democracy at Old Parliament House

Earlier this month the proppaNOW exhibition Insurgence opened at the Museum of Australian Democracy at Old Parliament House (or MOADOPH for short). Vernon writes:

The irony in an artist group like us showing at Old Parliament House in Canberra was not lost on us. We were eager too for the opportunity to show our work in such close proximity to the Aboriginal Tent Embassy which continues to have much resonance for our people. It was particularly satisfying showing with Andrea Fisher whose work and strong ideas, as a former member of proppaNOW, are a welcome inclusion in the show.
