Important Aboriginal Art #1

Mitchell Fine Art

A collection of exceptional Aboriginal paintings by some of Australia’s foremost Indigenous artists feature in the exhibition Important Aboriginal Art #1, showing at Mitchell Fine Art in Fortitude Valley from June 21st to July 16.

When contemporary Aboriginal art gained momentum during the 1970’s and 1980’s, this garnered both national and international interest and acclaim. Generally untrained in the visual arts, the artists were painting stories of culture and history that radiated an energy and power which captivated viewers.

Important Aboriginal Art

This collection of artworks features predominantly Central Australian artists that includes Clifford Possum, Emily Kame Kngwarreye and Makinti Napanangka.

These artists possess an extraordinary natural talent for colour and composition, and their artworks play an important role in the visual storytelling of Aboriginal culture and life in Australia.

Important Aboriginal Art

A feature of the exhibition is a collection of early Aboriginal artefacts and Papunya boards. Held in private collections for many years, these items are being exhibited for the first time in decades.
