Art has been an integral part of Indigenous culture throughout time. Year after year, the NGV strengthens its collection of work from First Nations artists, building on holdings of rare nineteenth-century cultural objects and drawings and charting the evolution of contemporary Indigenous art throughout all regions of Australia.
This week, I wanted to share some stories from Indigenous artists whose works are and will soon be on display at The Ian Potter Centre: NGV Australia. I hope you can experience them in person soon.
