Home: Aboriginal art from NSW

Roy Kennedy Mission boy dreams 2006

Brings together online resources and links to support the printed education kit Home: Aboriginal art from New South Wales.

Home celebrates the work of over 25 significant Aboriginal artists who belong to nations and language groups that today fall within the area defined as New South Wales. Their work highlights the cultural diversity of Aboriginal nations, or language groups, across the state, and shared concepts that bind Aboriginal artists and their communities together.

The art is drawn from the collection of the Art Gallery of NSW along with other regional galleries and organisations, as noted below. An exhibition of the same name was held at the Gallery in 2012.
