Australian collection focus room, ground level

This focus exhibition will highlight the eight bark paintings and sixteen works on paper that came to the Art Gallery in 1956 from the American Australian Scientific Expedition to Arnhem Land (AASEAL), which was the largest expedition in Australia’s history. These early works from the communities of Groote Eylandt, Yirrkala, Milingimbi and Gunbalanya (Oenpelli) in the Northern Territory became the foundation to the Art Gallery of NSW collection.
