Art From Down Under
Beginning February 5, Harvard Art Museums gets a little Southern exposure when it unveils the exhibit Everywhen: The Eternal Present in Indigenous Art from Australia. This display of contemporary aboriginal art from the last 40 years deals with the cyclical view of time that is ingrained in the culture of the island continent’s native people. The more than 70 works by some of the most acclaimed artists working in Australia today is enhanced by historical objects from Harvard’s own Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology that underscore both Australian art’s enduring indigenous traditions as well as its most recent innovations.
