CLEVERMAN

14 March - 6 September 2020
Kings Floor

Cleverman stormed onto ABC TV in 2016 as a dystopian sci-fi with a difference. With predominantly Indigenous cast and senior crew, the series explores a series of Aboriginal origin stories in a contemporary context, with political nuance touching on themes of class, racism and power.

Exploring First Nations storytelling, language and creativity in production design, costumes and props, this free exhibition invites you to listen-first and immerse yourself in a powerful and contemporary expression of origin stories.

The exhibition explores the making of Cleverman, including props, costumes and make-up from the series, designs by Weta Workshop and artwork from the original comic book series.



Curated by ACMI and co-curated by Cleverman concept creator Ryan Griffen and Cleverman production designer Jacob Nash.

This project has been assisted by the Australian Government’s Visions of Australia program.

The City of Mount Gambier acknowledges the Boandik Peoples as the Traditional Custodians of the land and water our city sits upon today.

We respect and recognise the deep feelings of attachment and the spiritual relationship our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples have with the land and water.
