Open now in the Shaw Gallery on the Museum's second floor. Closes December 14.
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
