The 23-year-old Australian art historian
is behind the “Uncomfortable Art Tours”, a series of museum visits in
the capital exploring history with a twist.

She focuses on what she describes as
racist narratives and an ideology that underpins the objects displayed
in European exhibitions from the colonial period, which isn’t always
mentioned.
