Culture Warriors by Keri DouglasThe largest collection of of Indigenous art ever to leave Australia.

10 September to 6 December, 2009

American University Museum – Katzen Arts Center

Washington, DC

Contemporary. Bold. Innovative. Thirty Australian indigenous artists from every territory and state reveal their current passions, torments or appreciation for their surroundings.  Inspiration from the water, the land, the skies, dreams, social news of the day set the trend for the next generation of indigenous art.

The unique collection is curated by Brenda L. Croft, a member of the Gurindji/Mudpurra peoples of the Northern Australia.  She presents the political and social commentary as vast as the continent in every medium.  Prints, oils, sculptures of every dimension are featured.

This exhibit is extraordinary, must be seen now before it returns to Australia.
