Beginnings—Indigenous art from the collection

16 May 2018 to 22 July 2018

Geelong projects


Geelong Gallery has the beginnings of a fine and focussed representation of Indigenous Australian art, and this exhibition reveals the cultural and aesthetic diversity of contemporary Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art in a selection of paintings and works on paper donated to the collection by passionate collectors over the past two decades.

In careful and considered ways the Gallery aims to develop its holdings of Indigenous Australian art to honour the vital creative practices and visual traditions through which we are able to see different visions of Country.

Beginnings is programmed to coincide with National Reconciliation Week and NAIDOC Week, and includes works by Samantha Hobson, Gloria Petyarre, Brian Robinson, Pedro Wonaeamirri, and Judy Watson.
