Just Not Australian is a FREE exhibition which brings together 19 Australian artists across generations and mediums to deal broadly with the origins and implications of contemporary Australian nationhood.
Presented at Museum of Sydney from 11 March to 4 June 2023, Just Not Australian presents a broad exploration of race, place and belonging. Showcasing the sensibilities of larrikinism, satire and resistance, the exhibition engages with the moral and ethical undertones of the increasingly weaponised retort 'un-Australian'.
The exhibition includes artworks from Abdul Abdullah, Hoda Afshar, Tony Albert, Cigdem Aydemir, Liam Benson, Yuriyal Eric Bridgeman, Jon Campbell, Karla Dickens, Fiona Foley, Gordon Hookey, Richard Lewer, Archie Moore, Vincent Namatjira Nell, Raquel Ormella, Ryan Presley, Joan Ross, Tony Schwensen and Soda Jerk.
Curated by Artspace and developed in partnership with Sydney Festival and Museums & Galleries of NSW. The exhibition is touring nationally with Museums & Galleries of NSW and has been assisted with funding through the Australia Council for the Arts.

Museum of SydneyBuilt over and around the remains of Sydney's First Government House, the Museum of Sydney is transforming into a new First Nations cultural space. Join us on Gadigal Country for a changing program of exhibitions, events and conversations that explore the character, cultures and soul of this city, and celebrate the diversity, strength and resilience of its First Nations custodians.MHNSWMuseums of History NSW is changing the way our past is understood and our future will be experienced. This new 'home' for the history of NSW brings together the historic houses, museums and collections previously in the care of Sydney Living Museums with the vast archives and records in the NSW State Archives Collection. Dedicated to engaging people in our past, Museums of History NSW provides greater access to these assets and to a broad range of stories about our social, cultural and political histories and identities.As custodians and storytellers, we are committed to preserving and presenting NSW's unique history. Our places and collections comprise some of the most significant historical material in the country. With this as our foundation, we bring history to life through diverse voices and viewpoints, supporting audiences of all backgrounds to gain fresh perspectives and understandings of their past, present and future.Central to this commitment is focusing a clear and accurate lens on the past that enables a truthful exploration of the continuing, lived impact of colonisation on First Nations communities and their connections to culture and Country. With truthtelling and respect at the core of our approach, we aim to build on our shared histories, across our shared landscapes, and heal together for a united future.Putting history before us, not behind us, we strive to keep the history of NSW relevant, empowering and new.
