They Came Like a Tsunami is an exhibition by Ngarrindjeri artist and activist, Sandra Saunders. A champion of Aboriginal rights, Saunders was a vocal leader of the protests over the Hindmarsh Island Bridge. 

Through her paintings, Saunders communicates historic narratives and continued resistance to colonisation. 

ACE Open and Ku Arts are proud to partner in the presentation of work from South Australian Aboriginal Artists at ACE Across during TARNANTHI.
