In an eclectic group of works from Destiny Deacon, Tracey Moffatt, the Noongar Doll Makers, Elsie Labumore Roughsey - whose autobiography lends the exhibition its title -  and Joyce Winsley, the doll is variously an anonymous prop, a poignant effigy, a means of building community or a vehicle for cultural critique.
