Encounters Exhibition at the National Museum of Australia

Only on show at the National Museum of Australia, Canberra until 28 March 2016. Free Entry.

Encounters: Revealing stories of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Objects from the British Museum. 

Encounters is a not-to-be-missed exhibition that reveals the powerful stories of rare Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander objects from the British Museum's unparalleled collection.

These objects feature alongside contemporary works from the Indigenous communities included in the exhibition. Many of the objects from the British Museum have not been seen in Australia since they were first acquired during contact between early settlers and First Australians across all states and territories.
