'Sugar' reflects on the history of the industry that first brought South Sea Islanders to Australia. The exhibition features a selection of historical photographs documenting South Sea Islanders working in Queensland, drawn from the collections of the Queensland Art Gallery and the State Library of Queensland. These photographs are accompanied by recordings of stories and music which explore these histories, as well as the experiences of Australian South Sea Islanders today. Other works include a selection of Max Dupain's romantic mid-twentieth-century visions of the sugar industry and the collaborative barkcloth installation Tetei Vou (A new garden) 2009, which examines the legacy of sugar production in Fiji.
