MOMENTUM
RECENT ACQUISITIONS OF ABORIGINAL ART

25 May 2019 to 30 June 2019
The richness and diversity of Northern Australian contemporary Indigenous art takes centre stage in Momentum: recent acquisitions of Aboriginal art. 

Momentum reveals exciting new acquisitions which have been added to MAGNT’s collection over the past three years. This impressive display of paintings, sculptures and items of material culture highlights the current momentum behind the development of MAGNT’s collection of Aboriginal art and material culture.

 

Many of these acquisitions were made possible through the generosity and vision of a number of passionate individuals and sponsors who acknowledge and value the power of Aboriginal art and its importance to our nation.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are advised that this exhibition contains paintings, photographs, and sculptures of people who have passed away.
