art + soul explores the diversity of Indigenous culture through three themes: ‘home and away’, ‘dreams and nightmares’ and ‘bitter and sweet’. Drawing on key works from the Art Gallery of NSW collection, it reveals the myriad contemporary artistic expressions that evidence the enduring heritage of Indigenous Australia, in all its diversity and complexity.

This exhibition highlights the artists and art featured in the groundbreaking three-part documentary series art + soul televised on ABC late last year.
