About the Exhibition

Exploring First Nations storytelling, language and creativity in production design, costumes and props, this free exhibition invites you to listen-first and immerse yourself in a powerful and contemporary expression of origin stories.  

Cleverman stormed onto ABC TV in 2016 as a dystopian sci-fi with a difference. With predominantly Indigenous cast and senior crew, the series explores a series of Aboriginal origin stories in a contemporary context, with political nuance touching on themes of class, racism and power. 

The exhibition explores the making of Cleverman, including props, costumes and make-up from the series, designs by Weta Workshop and artwork from the original comic book series. 

This exhibition has been curated by ACMI and co-curated by Cleverman concept creator Ryan Griffen and Cleverman production designer Jacob Nash. Exhibition research partners Prof. Angela Ndalianis and Dr Liam Burke, Swinburne University of Technology.
