The 4th National Indigenous Art Triennial: Ceremony is the National Gallery’s flagship exhibition of contemporary Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art.
Ceremony remains central to the creative practice of many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists. From the intimate and personal to the collective and collaborative, ceremonies manifest through visual art, film, music and dance.
Featuring a selection of the works of 35 artists from across Australia, this exhibition reveals how ceremony is at the nexus of Country, of culture and of community.
Location: Lin Onus Gallery, Level 1 & People's Gallery, Level 2
