This exhibition features intensely colorful canvases and extremely intricate paintings on bark by 33 contemporary Australian Aboriginal women painters from indigenous communities all over the continent. Rooted in Aboriginal stories called Dreamings, these paintings express the women’s connection to the land and their country. The exhibition gives insight into the separated gender spheres that still exist in Aboriginal societies, and highlights the important contributions of female artists to this unique contemporary art.
