The biggest exhibition project staged by Mosman Art Gallery to date, Bungaree: the First Australian is an exhibition of commissioned artworks by fifteen emerging and established contemporary NSW Aboriginal artists.

The artists have created new works to acknowledge and critically re-interpret the story of Bungaree, known as the Chief of the Broken Bay Aborigines and a central figure in early Colonial Sydney.

Curated by renowned Aboriginal curator Djon Mundine, the exhibition features artworks by France Belle-Parker, Mervyn Bishop, Daniel Boyd, Karla Dickens, Fiona Foley, Adam Hill, Warwick Keen, Gary Lee, Peter McKenzie, Danie Mellor, Caroline Oakley, Rea, Gordon Syron, Leanne Tobin and Jason Wing.
