Across Country: Indigenous Work From The Collection
Gallery at HOTA 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 are explored through a selection of paintings, photography, prints, drawings and three-dimensional objects.
Until 29 April, Gallery at HOTA, 135 Bundall Road, Surfers Paradise. 5588 4067. hota.com.au
