Gordon Hookey, Summoning Time: Painting & Politikill Transitions in MURRILAND!


Gordon Hookey’s cycle of monumental paintings MURRILAND! (2015–ongoing) re-envisions the history of his home state of Queensland, Australia, surveying pre-colonisation to the present day, unravelling received versions of history and confronting non-Indigenous narratives. This publication GORDON HOOKEY: Summoning Time, Painting & Politikill Transition in MURRILAND! compiles materials surrounding the first canvas in the series, coinciding with its presentation in documenta 14. It features Hookey’s source material; an essay by Aboriginal historian Michael Aird; a conversation between Gordon Hookey, Frontier Imaginaries curator Vivian Ziherl, and documenta 14 curator Hendrik Folkerts; and a dialogue between Gordon Hookey and anthropologist Johannes Fabian. This book is published as a collaboration between Griffith University, Frontier Imaginaries, documenta 14, and the Van Abbemuseum.
