For NAIDOC Week 2022, join us on this immersive virtual tour of Peter Mac's Aboriginal art collection.
The varied paintings in our collection illustrate some of the multiple strands, diversity and evolving nature of Aboriginal art which has extended well beyond the classical traditions of Desert Art, as the most familiar dot and circle style has come to be known. They are exhibited throughout Peter Mac's main campus in Parkville and our sattelite sites around Victoria.
Styles, symbols, materials and use of colour utilised in the creation of art in different regions spread across Australia varies from artist to artist, region and community, from the Kimberley, to the Central and Western Desert, the Top End and Arnhem Land or Cape York.
Each has a vibrant artistic life and output with strong links to the land and traditional ceremony and practices.
