Vincent Serico: Some People are Stories to Tour Queensland - Media Release

Vincent Serico: Some people are stories has received Playing Queensland touring funding through Arts Queensland and will be touring throughout regional Queensland in partnership between FireWorks Gallery and Museums and Galleries Queensland (M&G QLD).

Vincent’s art aims to acknowledge Aboriginal existence in a way that gives comfort, while recognising past pain, sorrow, longing and loss, and leaving a trace of them in the hearts of others. Vincent always wanted to tour his work, he wanted to share his stories to the widest possible audience.
