Antwerp host to Aboriginal art display
Some 70 paintings by Aboriginal artists from central Australia are on show at an exhibition which opened in Antwerp on Friday evening, 3 February.
The exhibition, 'Woestijnsporen - Desert Tracks: Aboriginal Kunst uit Centraal Australië', was officially opened by Antwerp City Council's Alderman for Culture, Mr Eric Antonis.
The works on display have been drawn from the collection of Stichting INMA, Amsterdam, and include traditional paintings as well as pieces which, while based on traditional patterns, are more contemporary in treatment and approach.
Many women artists figure in the exhibition, which includes paintings by Bessie Liddle, Kitty Miller, Maxie Tjampitjinpa and Colin Dixon Tjapananga.
'Desert Tracks' will be on show at the Cultureel Centrum Berchem, Drie Koningenstraat 126, Berchem, until 2 April. The exhibition is open daily, except Monday, from 10am until 5pm.
