Jacob Stengl is a significant Aboriginal artist entering a bold new phase of his career. Milerum (Clarence Long) is amongst the most important researchers and cultural authorities to have ever worked with an Australian Museum.

In this dramatic new body of work, Stengl reframes the South Australian Museum as a site of reconciliation. As his grandfather did before him.
