Overview

Of Country and Culture celebrates the gift to the Museum of over one hundred objects created by Aboriginal artists since the mid-1990s. This extraordinary collection, which includes a significant number of works by women artists, comes to the Museum from May and Victor Lam. The exhibition presents a diverse range of materials and regional styles—from the intricately painted bark paintings of Arnhem Land, to the pukumani grave poles of the Tiwi Islands, and the boldly colored abstract paintings of the Western Desert.
