Standing at the heart of seven generations is an exhibition which ​tells the story of artist Juanita McLauchlan's family connections and dual histories, ​with a focus on personal belongings and body adornments. ​​​​

Juanita McLauchlan is an artist of Gamilaraay descent living on Wiradjuri Country. Everything she makes starts from this place, and this understanding: that a person's history, inheritances, loves and relationships are shaped by Country and by family circumstance.

The exhibition features large scale sculptural necklaces, made from woollen blankets and possum skins, as well as large eco-printed blankets marked by direct contact with branches, bark and leaves from the local trees and shrubs around Wagga Wagga. 

The exhibition is being hosted at NSW Parliament by Dr Joe McGirr, Member for Wagga Wagga​.

How to see the exhibition

Visit the exhibition at NSW Parliament House on weekdays​, 9am to 5pm between 3 and 29 April. ​ Access is to the left of the building via the security gatehouse.
