There are nearly 3,000 Indigenous works of art from across Australia held at the Gallery and each one of these works offers insights, small and large, into Indigenous art, life, culture and experience.
The first display is Outside: Matters of the heart in Indigenous art.Outside includes works of art by artists such as Shane Pickett, Lance (Tjyllyungoo) Chadd, Danie Mellor, Brenda L. Croft, Lena Nyadbi and Lin Onus, who, together, bring the idea of 'outside' inside for all of us to see. Paintings, photography, drawings, prints and sculpture fill the show.
