Co-curated by Adj. Prof. Margo Ngawa Neale, this exhibition offers an immersive journey into the vibrant realm of Australian Aboriginal art. It highlights a contemporary movement dedicated to preserving the deep cultural wisdom and profound significance of the land, known as Country, across successive generations.
