This catalogue recovers fragments of the lost story of Sydney’s Garden Palace and its intersecting histories through an investigation of ideas around architecture, landscape, collection and display, language and cultural identity. Celebrating the resilience and survival of the world’s oldest living cultures, barrangal dyara (skin and bones) is at the forefront of a long-awaited acknowledgement and renaissance of Indigenous culture and language in Australia. This beautifully designed publication is richly illustrated throughout, featuring over 100 large-scale historical and contemporary images and illustrations. Edited by Genevieve O'Callaghan, it includes original essays and interviews with leading Aboriginal writers including Bruce Pascoe – winner of two 2016 NSW Premier’s Literary Awards – Jeanine Leane, Hetti Perkins and Uncle Stan Grant Sr AM, alongside Australian academics Ross Gibson, Peter Kohane, Ilaria Vanni Accarigi and barrangal dyara (skin and bones) curator Emma Pike.
