The Most Gaoled Race on Earth exhibition opened over the weekend at the Lock Up Gallery, an old police station turned art space, on the NSW north coast.
A collaboration between acclaimed Aboriginal artist Blak Douglas and non-Indigenous artist Adam Geczy, some of the artworks reimagine the board game Monopoly and the game Hangman, as a way to comment on race relations in Australia.
In one piece the famous Monopoly motif of a police officer with the words 'Go to Jail' has been turned into a young Aboriginal man with the words 'Go To Hell. Manopoly".
Another piece is a large-scale painting of the game hangman featuring a black man hanging in a noose with the word Aboriginal written underneath him.
