Terra inFirma | 360 VR tour

Available now, the virtual tour captures part one of the timely three-part exhibition, which examines the impact of James Cook's arrival in Botany Bay, 250 years ago, on First Nations Peoples and communities from the Asia Pacific region.

From the comfort of your home you can walk through Fozia Zahid's series of miniature paintings, zoom in on the careful detail of Teivao Tamariki's Māori Polynesian painting and sculpture, and circle the painted and stitched Irish linen floor work of Venessa Possum's Murura - Pathways.

Scroll through the names of men who, as listed by Judy Watson, perpetrated and enabled the massacres of Aboriginal people, and inspect the craftsmanship that went into mapping Shivanjani Lal's family history of migration from India to Fiji and Australia. Your virtual journey continues as you unearth the historical and contemporary livelihoods for many people from the Philippines as captured by Kristone Capistrano, and follow the ancient history of trade depicted by Jumaadi in The Sea of Thorny Fruits

This interactive and immersive online experience was created alongside digital production company TVD.media to provide unlimited access to the selection of specially curated artworks, detailed descriptions and artist interviews.
