*The Museum of Fine Arts, Gifu will reopen from October 1(Fri).

In the midst of all the talk of cultural diversity, the art of Australia’s indigenous people, the Aborigines, has become widely known throughout the world over the past 30 years. Bark painting with natural pigments on bark and pointillism with acrylics on canvas are representative of their style. They represent “the Dreaming,” the story of the creation of the country, which contains myths and folklore as well as the ancient way of life. This exhibition introduces the world of art that conveys the breath of the earth through Aboriginal artwork from the Gifu Prefectural Art Museum collection.
