Across Country – Indigenous Work From The Collection

As international and Australian visitors descend on the Gold Coast for the 2018 Commonwealth Games, Gold Coast City Gallery is proud to share art and objects that celebrate the world’s oldest continuing culture.

Gold Coast City Gallery has one of the largest collections of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art in regional Australia that has been developed through numerous donations and by actively acquiring works by Australia’s leading Indigenous artists.

The collection is broad in scope and includes examples from many significant Indigenous arts communities; and features both traditional, contemporary and urban works across all media. Across Country is the first significant appraisal of the Gallery’s collection that seeks to identify themes, stories and connections between the many artists and works represented.

Creating art as a medium of exchange and communication; human condition, kinship, history and the natural and spiritual environments will be explored through a selection of paintings, photography, prints, drawings and three-dimensional objects.

The exhibition is part of our Indigenous program presented by Bond University.
