Exhibition: Message Stick: Indigenous Identity in Urban Australia, May 24 – Jul 1 2012 @ Nairobi National Museum

The Australian High Commission in Nairobi will be hosting an indigenous art exhibition at the Nairobi National Museum.  Titled Message Stick: Indigenous Identity in Urban Australia, the exhibition is a selection of works by 11 Indigenous artists living in urban areas throughout Australia.
Drawn from the active urban art scene in Australia, the exhibition features a selection of significant works by artists at the forefront of contemporary arts in Australia and there is a deep sense of grieving, dislocation and loss yet also offering humour, energy, optimism and most importantly, a moving political and social perspective of Australian history by indigenous artists.

The opening of the exhibition is on Thursday 24 May from 6.30pm-8.30pm at the Nairobi National Museum.
