Indigenous in black-and-white

Today’s Australian Aborigines still mirror their past in myth and ritual, but they also reflect adaptation to contemporary Western culture. A traveling exhibit at U.Va.’s Kluge-Ruhe museum, on display until Oct. 5, shows black-and-white images of people blending the past and present in everyday life in the exhibit, “Nakkondi/Look: Photographs of Indigenous Australians” by Nicole Cumpston and Andrew Dunbar.

Another exhibit from the museum’s permanent collection, “The Inside Story: X-Ray Art from Arnhem Land,” accompanies the photographs.

Visitors can sign up for the next Tucker Box Tour Oct. 2, which includes lunch following a tour of the current exhibits. Participants can bring their own lunch or order one for $7. Call 244-0234 to make a reservation.

Regular gallery hours:
Tuesday through Saturday,
9 a.m.-3 p.m.
Free guided tours:
Saturdays at 10:30 a.m.
