Description

The new Six Seasons Gallery (named after the Noongar six seasons) is a space dedicated to the display and interpretation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art from the State Art Collection. It is part of the AGWA Collection five pathways, many journeys rehang. The first display is Outside: Matters of the heart in Indigenous art. This exhibition includes art that deals with the beauty and importance of the land and environment to Aboriginal people, and touches on some of the practices and rituals that connect people to 'Country' – a word Aboriginal people use to describe the lands and places in Australia to which they have traditional ties. There are nearly 3,000 Indigenous works of art from across Australia held at the Gallery and each one of these works offers insights, small and large, into Indigenous art, life, culture and experience.
