Mathieu Gallois has created two works for Palimpsest 2013. The Sunraysia Daily 1966-1974 will take the form of an insert for the Sunraysia Daily, which will be distributed with the Sunraysia Daily during Palimpsest. Let Aborigines Make Own Choice will reproduce key articles from the period in a Gallery setting.
Both Gallois' works are based on articles about Aboriginal people, or issues relating to them that were published in the Sunraysia Daily during the corresponding 8 years.  This period entails the 1967 Referendum, the discovery of Mungo Woman and Man and represents a period of significant evolution of tone and content of articles about Aboriginal people in the Sunraysia Daily. Each article will be reproduced on the page it was first published, with all the remaining non Aboriginal content dramatically blacked out (with the exception of the Sunraysia Masthead and date).
