Known as the Yiribana Gallery, this space presents a selection of works from our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander collection. Yiribana means ‘this way’ in the language of the Eora people and acknowledges the location of the gallery on Gadigal land. Representing artists from communities across Australia, it celebrates Indigenous Australia’s enduring cultural heritage and its myriad contemporary expressions.
