‘Out of Country’
exhibit features Queensland art|
For Australia’s indigenous people, art is an expression of the relationship
to the land, the “country.”
But the landscape is not all desert outback. “Out of Country,” an
exhibit on display at the Kluge-Ruhe Aboriginal Art Collection” until Aug.
14, features artwork
from Queensland, a tropical northeastern state, and the Torres Strait Islands.
The exhibit also
offers a range of artists’ perspectives
on contemporary urban life and the connections
to culture and country. Almost 30 artists contributed
and sculpture to the exhibition, which was organized by the Queensland Indigenous
Arts marketing and Export Agency.
Kluge-Ruhe Aboriginal Art Museum is open Tuesday through
Saturday, 9 a.m.-3 p.m., and is
located at 400 Worrell Drive, Peter Jefferson Place.
