With a history of exhibitions featuring uncompromising titles such as No shades of white and Lick my black art, Foley traces the ongoing significance of Australia’s colonial histories. Individual works explore a broad range of themes that relate to politics, culture, ownership, language and identity.

The MCA is partnering with The University of Queensland Art Museum, Brisbane in presenting this exhibition, which will be accompanied by a publication. Following its MCA showing, Forbidden: Fiona Foley will be presented at The University of Queensland Art Museum from 2 April to 23 May 2010.
