Exhibition floortalk: early bark paintings from Arnhem Land

THURSDAY  14 November – 1-1.30PM

IAN POTTER MUSEUM OF ART, UNIVERSITY OF MELBOURNE

Curator Joanna Bosse will discuss the collection histories of the remarkable bark paintings in the exhibition, which were collected by University staff Professor Donald Thomson and Dr Leonhard Adam during 1935-1950, providing insight into the circumstances and relationships that generated the production of clan designs onto bark for outsiders. Donald Thomson Collection and Leonhard Adam Collection of International Indigenous Culture are renowned early collections of Indigenous material culture of historical and cultural significance.

All welcome, no bookings required.

Please contact the Ian Potter Museum for more details.
