Vincent Namatjira

23 Apr - 2 Aug 2015

Vincent Namatjira has been curated into a major exhibition ‘Indigenous Australia: Enduring Civilisation’ at the British Museum, London. Drawing on objects from the British Museum’s collection and accompanied by important loans from British and Australian collections, the exhibition explores Indigenous Australia as a living culture with a continuous history dating back 60,000 years. Objects in the exhibition range from a shield believed to have been collected by Captain Cook at Botany Bay in 1770, to contemporary paintings and specially commissioned artworks by leading Indigenous artists.
