In line with decisions made by the National Cabinet as communicated by the NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian, Carriageworks is now closed to the public until further notice to help protect the health of all visitors and staff and minimise the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus) in the State.
Any update to these restrictions will be communicated by the NSW Government in due course. Further official information and advice on COVID-19 for community and businesses in NSW is available at https://preview.nsw.gov.au/covid-19.
REMEMBER ME is a monumental illuminated text work by Melbourne-based Kamilaroi artist Reko Rennie.
Located prominently at the Wilson Street entrance to Carriageworks, REMEMBER ME references Rennie’s history as a graffiti artist, whose adaption of urban spaces created sites of protest, politics and poetry.
2020 marks the 250th anniversary of Captain James Cook’s first landfall at Botany Bay and the HMB Endeavour’s charting of the east coast of Australia.
In a national climate currently marred by tension and division as to how this history is acknowledged, Rennie’s work is a searing reminder of the frontier wars, the massacres and the survival of the real sovereigns of this country, the Aboriginal people of Australia.
