Where Washington - - EDITOR'S NOTE -

“MARK­ING THE IN­FI­NITE” at The Phillips Col­lec­tion show­cases the work of nine lead­ing Abo­rig­i­nal Aus­tralian women artists. In the late 1980s women artists took the reigns of the con­tem­po­rary Abo­rig­i­nal art move­ment in Aus­tralia. Af­ter years of work­ing in the shad­ows, as­sist­ing their fa­thers and hus­bands, these women burst onto the scene, giv­ing it a new vi­tal­ity and dy­namism. They re­drew the bound­aries of Abo­rig­i­nal art, and con­tinue to be among its most dar­ing in­no­va­tors. This mes­mer­iz­ing ex­hi­bi­tion asks us to con­sider the unity and di­ver­sity of our world. On view through Sept. 9.
