Red Heart of Australia is an exhibition of eight paintings united by the colour red. Created by Aboriginal artists from across Central Australia, these precious works from the National Museum of Australia's collection show how the colour red expresses relationships to Country, family, ritual and spirituality.
This exhibition is on show at the National Art Museum of China, Beijing, China, from 31 July to 2 December 2021.
Cultural exchange program
This exhibition is offered as part of a longstanding cultural exchange program with the National Art Museum of China (NAMOC) and will be on show in Beijing from 31 July to 2 December 2021. A reciprocal exhibition of Chinese sculptures will be displayed in the Gandel Atrium at the National Museum of Australia from 14 September 2021 to 14 February 2022.
Red Heart of Australia is supported by the National Collecting Institutions Touring and Outreach Program, an Australian Government program aiming to improve access to the national collections for all Australians.
