Lifelines: Indigenous Contemporary Art from Australia

Lifelines: Indigenous Contemporary Art from Australia is an exhibition at Québec City’s Musée de la civilisation running from 21 October 2015 to 5 September 2016. The contemporary Australian Indigenous art attests to the cultural vitality and rich history of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, carrying on powerful artistic traditions dating back more than 60,000 years.

Lifelines exhibits close to 100 works 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 blue skies. The exhibition features three thematic zones: "Land of Dreams", "Land of Knowledge", and "Land of Power".

At the entrance to the exhibition is Karrku, an immense collective work by 36 artists from the community of Yuendumu in the Tanami Desert. Two interactive terminals detail the ancestral stories that underpin the piece. Further on, three creative video montages take a look at the human presence dating across the millennia. There are also 11 family learning stations to spark young people's curiosity.
