    Abstract

    The Chinese have been a significant presence in Australasia since the nineteenth
    century, lured by the gold rushes in Australia and New Zealand, frequently
    marginalised into china towns, oppressed by the white colonial governments,
    existing uneasily between Europeans and indigenous peoples. Later waves of
    Chinese came for different reasons; politics, opportunity, family. These early
    migrants and their children contributed significantly to their multicultural
    communities but have different world views and identities to the more recent
    Chinese migrants.The purpose of this paper is to explore and celebrate that
    identity and its fraught relationship with other traditional or contemporay global
    perspectives as expressed in the exhibition Gold Mountain Takeaways.
