Taking its title from an artwork by Leah King Smith, Patterns of Connection features the work of Indigenous artists from the Benalla Art Gallery Collection.

Indigenous art is often political, and several of these artists address contentious issues including representation, racism, religious influence and the exploitation of land. Others express their identity and connection with the land by representing ancestral stories, traditions and ceremonies.

The exhibition includes works by Brook Andrew, Destiny Deacon, Fiona Foley, Leah King-Smith, Gordon Bennett, Gloria Tamerre Petyarre and Turkey Tolson Tjupurrula.
