More than 35 works from around Australia have been selected to represent the significance of water – and how this is represented in art – by Australia’s Indigenous population in the latest McCulloch’s exhibition to be held at Salt Contemporary. Water, from drought to floods, is one of the key environmental issues in Australia today, and water dreaming paintings have been some of the most significant Indigenous art ever made.
This exhibition consists of contemporary works from coastal and desert regions throughout Australia that dynamically represent this theme.
