Coming to the Chazen January 26, 2018:
Ancestral Modern: Australian Aboriginal Art from the Kaplan & Levi Collection introduces American audiences to the spectacular efflorescence of Indigenous Australian painting and sculpture that has occurred since the 1970s.
In the late 1960s, decades of grassroots activism culminated in political changes that brought increased power and visibility to Aboriginal people. The years that followed marked the start of an artistic renaissance, fueled both by the end of government policies that demanded assimilation into white society and by the growing desire of Aboriginal artists to share their ancient culture with the wider world. This exhibition, curated by Pam McClusky, Curator of African and Oceanic Art at the Seattle Art Museum, will engage museum visitors throughout the United States with these arresting works and the intriguing stories they tell.
