You are warmly invited to the exhibition about contemporary art in Australia called Lifelines at Musée de la civilisation. Lifelines abounds in life and color, its close to 100 works specially selected by guest curator Professor Françoise Dussart of the University of Connecticut. They are displayed in an open space that evokes the vastness of Australia— its earth tones, vegetation, and near-uninterrupted blue skies. The exhibition features three thematic zones for the key moments along the way: “Lands of Dreams,” “Lands of Knowledge,” and “Lands of Power.” The contemporary art produced by Australia’s indigenous peoples attests to their cultural vitality and rich history. Creations by Aborigines and Torres Strait Islanders carry on powerful artistic traditions dating back more than 60,000 years to flow naturally into other great contemporary artistic movements.
