Convergence: Australian Art Here and Beyond

This spring, a host of Australian-focused arts events are taking place in Houston, then this summer season will be punctuated with Aboriginal art happenings in the Washington, D.C. area, and the opening of the grand new “Musee de Quai Branly” in Paris, which will feature indigenous art from around the world including a domed ceiling painted by eight indigenous artists from Australia.
