UQ Art Museum is hosting the 4th National Indigenous Art Triennial: Ceremony, the National Gallery of Australia’s flagship exhibition of contemporary Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art. UQ Art Museum is the only Queensland venue on the exhibition tour.

Ceremony remains central to the creative practice of many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists. From the intimate and personal to the collective and collaborative, ceremonies manifest through visual art, film, music and dance.

Featuring the work of 35 artists from across Australia, this exhibition reveals how ceremony is at the nexus of Country, of culture and of community.
