McCulloch’s Aboriginal Art @ Salt Contemporary
A decade of Australia’s indigenous fine art 1999-2009
Curated by McCulloch & McCulloch Art & Books
Designed as a ‘walk through our books’, the exhibition, part of Salt Contemporary Art's Winter Arts Programme, comprises more than 40 Aboriginal paintings, prints, sculptures, homewares and other works, selected us from around Australia and spanning more than a decade.
Three rare paintings by famed Kimberley artist Jack Britten, released for the first time by the artist’s estate, have been chosen to feature in this show, which follows on from a smaller similar exhibition on the Mornington Peninsula in February which proved highly popular.
