Selected works from the Adrian and Anne Newstead Indigenous art collection
Curated by Djon Mundine

Exhibition Friday 16 October to 8 November 2015

Exhibition opening is on Saturday 17 October from 2 - 4 pm.

Black Art | White Walls draws on the extensive personal collection of Indigenous art accumulated by Adrian and Anne Newstead while working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait islander artists over the past 30 years. It represents a linear history of Aboriginal art and craft from the earliest days of the contemporary movement, through to the establishment of the earliest art centres, into the mainstreaming of Aboriginal art and its national and international acceptance as a dynamic art movement many would say has been the single most effective vehicle in advancing understanding, empathy and reconciliation between black and white Australia.

Entry to the gallery is always free.
