Michael Riley: Sites Unseen

National Gallery of Australia Senior Curator of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art, Brenda L. Croft worked closely with Riley’s family, friends and colleagues to draw together a comprehensive body of work, charting the vision and experience of one of the country’s most significant visual artists and chronicling a period of intense cultural development and achievement. Michael Riley: Sights Unseen was been proudly supported by the National Gallery of Australia.
