Art & History Museum: Before time began

Dive headlong into the history of aboriginal Australian art and the mysteries that surround it


BEFORE TIME BEGAN explores the Dreamings and the creation of the earth but also focuses on the birth of contemporary art. The main part of the exhibition presents traditional bark paintings starting from the 1950s, made with natural pigments and originating in Arnhem Land; paintings and sculptures from the 1970s which emerged from the desert regions with the Western Desert art movement, in which artists experimented with bright industrial paint on canvas and wood panels; as well as more recent, at times monumental, creations by various contemporary artists or art collectives.

Where ? Cinquantenaire park 10, 1000 Brussels
