    Abstract

    The exhibit was displayed in the South Australian Maritime Museum (1 Feb–31 July 2014) and was curated by Roberts, Fowler and Sansbury. The exhibition featured nine framed crayon drawings (facsimiles) as well as a large interpretive panel.

    The drawings were collected in 1939 by Dorothy Tindale and Bee Birdsell at the Point Pearce Aboriginal Mission (Burgiyana) in South Australia. These artworks
    form just one component of a much larger assemblage of information and objects collected during the Board for Anthropological Research’s Harvard and Adelaide
    Universities’ Anthropological Expedition (1938–9).
