Wondering how you can explore, connect or teach with Aboriginal art from home or far away? From virtual exhibitions to podcasts, blogs, webinars and more, we’ve got you covered!
- We’ve developed two virtual exhibition experiences. We didn’t try to duplicate the experience of being in a museum because we know that’s a special thing unto itself. Instead, we asked the question: what can an online exhibition do that we can’t do in-person? That question has guided the following two resources:
- This online gallery displays ALL of the works in our exhibition, Irrititja Kuwarri Tjungu: Past & Present Together, which had to be split into two separate exhibitions due to our limited gallery space. There are FAQs, artist biographies, way more images, and further resources that aren’t accessible if you just visit in-person.
- This online exhibition of Dub Leffler’s artworks lets you hear directly from the artist himself! Make sure you turn up your volume so you can hear his incredible story.
- We’ve started a blog! It tracks our process and progress on developing an upcoming traveling exhibition of bark paintings. It’s a thrilling look into how museums can consult communities better and more fully when organizing exhibitions that feature their work.
- We have two video tours of exhibitions, so you can hear directly from experts about these artworks:
- We’ve presented some fascinating webinars over the past few years, and you can watch them anytime:
- Our podcast, Aboriginal Art in America, is a series of short snippets that investigates what’s happening for Aboriginal art in the USA.
- You can always browse our collection online here. It doesn’t feature our full collection, but some of our favorites are included.
- Curious about what we’ve been up to over the last few years? You can check out our past exhibitions, residencies and other major events on our Collaboration Archive here.
If you’re an educator, we have some virtual resources that might support what you do:
- Aboriginal Art 101 is an introductory guide to Indigenous Australian art and culture, written in collaboration with two Indigenous scholars, Nici Cumpston and Jilda Andrews.
- These lesson plans about the Western Desert art movement (what many Americans know as ‘dot painting’) will help you ensure the activities you’re doing with your students are informative rather than offensive.
- We’ve developed Kiki’s Kangaroo Kit as a fun way for families to connect with Kluge-Ruhe and Aboriginal art from home.
- Our Research Archive is a selection of articles we’ve published, written by staff and students.
