In Unsettled: Stories within, five leading Indigenous Australian artists — Julie Gough, Jonathan Jones, Judy Watson, Elma Kris and Wukun Wanambi — responded to the National Museum of Australia’s major exhibition, Encounters, which revealed Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultural material collected during the early years of European colonisation.

Unsettled was on show at the National Museum of Australia from 27 November 2015 to 28 March 2016.
