Indigenous Australia: Masterworks from the National Gallery of Australia
November 17, 2017 - April 2, 2018
Franchesca Cubillo, the NGA Senior Curator of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art, selected Christopher Pease‘s work Hunting Party (2003) as part of Indigenous Australia: Masterworks from the National Gallery of Australia.
The National Gallery of Australia partners with me Collectors Room Berlin to present significant works produced by Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists from the late 1800s through to today, drawn exclusively from the NGA’s extensive collection.
The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art collection at the NGA is the largest in the world and includes comprehensive collections of works by many of the most significant Indigenous artists in Australia. From rare, historical drawings to the dynamic Desert Painting movement and contemporary urban Aboriginal art, these works are a testament to the expertise, rich cultural knowledge and ingenuity of their creators. – NGA

Indigenous Australia: Masterworks from the National Gallery of Australia travelled from Germany to India in 2018. The exhibition featured at the National Gallery of Modern Art, New Delhi. Exposing the works to a varied international audience means “the NGA advances the international recognition and understanding of Indigenous Australians.” – NGA director Gerard Vaughan.
