PP Exhibit Title

Grease Exhibit Poster 









It's easy to forget the men and women who worked here

few traces of them now

their labour has disappeared--replaced by happy tourists, art 


But the grease under the machines hold their stories.

                    -- from "Cockatoo Island,” by Sarah Attfield

This special exhibit by Professor Sonja Darlington's FYI, hopes to bring the distinct and yet heterogeneous aspects of work, working class, and working class life into clearer focus. Runs Tuesday November 20th through Sunday March 29 in the Shaw Gallery on the museum's second floor.
