This is both a confrontational and joyful exhibition which must be seen to be believed. This exhibition, Tjukurrtjanu: Origins of Western Desert Art, is currently being held at The Ian Potter Centre:
NGV Australia
at Federation Square. There is a lot of talent in this exhibition which needs to be seen to be appreciated.

The art as well as the size of the gallery itself is generous. All you need to do is show up at The Ian Potter Centre, and this exhibition is free of charge. Art critics and non-artists alike could find common ground here. Head straight up to the third floor and your there. The only downside is going down a massive set of stairs to leave the gallery.

Other parts of the gallery contain art that would belong in the living room of any chic, contemporary home. There are a few other exhibitions to see at The Ian Potter Centre at Federation Square if it turns out that this exhibition was a disappointment for you. Manstyle is quite interesting. To get to the point: there is plenty of interesting and questionable art to see at NGV Australia.

Please note the works on display include art from indigenous people who have passed away.
