Field of Vision: Contemporary Indigenous Art

An unmissable exhibition examining Contemporary Indigenous Art through the lens of painterly invention and innovation.

Contemporary Indigenous Art is rarely examined through the lens of painterly invention. This exhibition curated by Christopher Hodges focuses on art from the Western Desert, highlighting the methods and techniques artists use to make their visions. The complexity and sophistication of this imagery rich with cultural knowledge has evolved over the past 50 years to create an art movement symbolic of Australia and its ancient land.


Artwork: George Tjungurrayi acrylic on linen 183 x 153cm Private Collection
