Featuring contemporary painting and sculpture by Australian Aboriginal artists, Ancestral Modern celebrates the renaissance that has occurred since the 1970s within the millennia-old traditions of indigenous Australian art. Come explore how artists have translated motifs from traditional art forms, such as rock and body painting, to media that can be more easily shared with viewers—communicating beliefs and histories, laws and rituals, and a profound connection to the land.
