Encounters featured rare, early Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander objects from the British Museum. They were displayed with new objects from the Indigenous communities represented in the exhibition.

These are powerful objects. They are all part of the living cultural traditions of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. They connect us to the histories of both Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians.
