Take a journey into 'Cleverman'

'Cleverman' is a TV series like none other - a dystopian sci-fi exploring Aboriginal origin stories in a contemporary context - and Central Coast locals and visitors can now step behind the scenes.

An exciting new exhibition at Central Coast Council's Gosford Regional Gallery immerses visitors in the iconic series through an exploration of the storytelling, language and creativity in production design, costumes and props.

Council Director Community and Recreation Services, Julie Vaughan said the exhibition is both fascinating and thought-provoking.

"'Cleverman' is a one of a kind TV series and this exhibition takes us deeper into the important themes explored including class, racism and power," Ms Vaughan said.

"We are given an opportunity to reflect on the importance of First Nations storytelling and explore the incredible pieces featured in the show."

The 'Cleverman' series was created through a predominantly Indigenous cast and senior crew and premiered on ABC Television in 2016.

Council Administrator, Rik Hart said the exhibition provides a unique insight into Aboriginal origin stories.

"This exhibition delivers powerful and thought-provoking messages and lets us explore the show's sets, costumes and props," Mr Hart said.

"Whether you've seen the TV series or not, I'd encourage you to head to the Gallery for this unique and important experience."

'Cleverman' is an ACMI touring exhibition. This project has been assisted by the Australian Government's Visions of Australia Program.

Community members and visitors to the Central Coast can experience the exhibition for free at Gosford Regional Gallery from Saturday 22 May to Sunday 11 July 2021, with the Exhibition Opening held on Friday 21 May, 6-7pm (bookings essential).
