Indigenous Art in the National Capital
Explore Ceremony, this year’s iteration of the National Indigenous Art Triennial at Canberra’s National Gallery of Australia, and discover other outstanding national collections of Indigenous art.
Curated by Hetti Perkins, Ceremony presents cutting-edge contemporary work by more than 35 emerging Indigenous artists from across the continent, from Broome to Canberra, Adelaide to Arnhem Land and the vast desert regions in between.
Then, visit the National Museum of Australia to take in a significant new exhibition, Talking Blak to History, that focuses on the history and experiences of Australia’s first peoples. Appreciate the millennial history of Indigenous Australians at the Australian War Memorial, where works from Utopia and APY lands are among the significant artworks by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists in the permanent collection.
Encounter other superlative collections of Indigenous art in Canberra’s major institutions, from the NGA’s permanent collection to a behind-the-scenes tour of the art collection at Parliament House.
Finally, enjoy an unprecedented opportunity to hear from the artists and curators themselves, in conversation with tour leader and foremost expert on Indigenous art, Wally Caruana.
