Living Memories

Through March 30, 2014, the Musée d’Aquitaine in Bordeaux is presenting Mémoires Vives. Une Histoire de l'Art Aborigène (Living Memories. A History of Aboriginal Art). It features 150 works by Australian Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal artists, ranging from antique artifacts and bark paintings to acrylic canvases, photographs, videos, and installations, drawn from a variety of public and private collections. Together the objects build a discourse that questions the idea, so dear to art criticism, of the schism between tradition and modernity, which this exhibition seeks to present as inseparable creative forces.
