Abstract

Tahnee Innes explored Indigenous curatorship in the Queensland rainforest. She found that curating is a cultural practice. Rainforest artefacts are selected and preserved, then communicated to the public as a material extension of spirit, story and place. Tahnee's research addresses the physical and ontological distance between museums and descendant communities.
