#IndigenousAustralia is the first major exhibition in the UK to present a history of Indigenous Australia through objects, celebrating the cultural strength and resilience of both Aboriginal peoples and Torres Strait Islanders. See spectacular objects like Torres Strait Islander masks alongside significant paintings.
Organised with the +National Museum of Australia, this exhibition‬ also includes important international loans http://ow.ly/M1IwX
