Curator Tour

Join Megan Tamati-Quennell, Associate Indigenous Curator Contemporary Art as she leads a tour of There is no before, a new exhibition of works by Dale Harding.

There is no before is the first solo exhibition by Dale Harding in Aotearoa / New Zealand.

Combining contemporary art, cultural practices and working with materials redolent of the land itself, Dale Harding, who is of Bidjara, Gungalu and Garingbal, Indigenous Australian descent, presents an exhibition that is evocative of place – the landscapes within Queensland’s central highlands that he belongs to.

There is no before features a new body of minimalist paintings and sculptures created by Harding that add to the canon of his family’s cultural production. It also includes eighteen nulla nulla, a rarely exhibited collection of taonga (cultural treasures) selected by him and loaned from Te Papa, that he has family connection with.
