Indigenous Australia: Enduring Civilisation (2015-2016)

Role: Curatorial intern & research assistant

Worked with head curators in researching materials and objects for the exhibition. Predominantly researched key objects, areas and collectors for the exhibitions and co-authored a report to prepare a delegation of museum staff visiting and consulting source communities on the island of Mabuiag in the Torres Strait, as well as contributing information to the accompanying book publication.

During my time there I uncovered a link between the ancient rock paintings of the Kimberly region (the ancestral Wandjina) and a British Museum object believed to be a one-of-a-kind headdress ornament (seen below):
