LIVE ON-LINE LECTURE: Sex, Spirits, and Sorcery, by Curator Henry Skerritt

Thursday, April 16, 2020
6:00 - 7:00 pm, Kluge-Ruhe Aboriginal Art Collection/ 400 Worrell Drive, Charlottesville

LECTURE: Sex, Spirits, and Sorcery, by Curator Henry Skerritt -- offered LIVE and ON-LINE

Located in Australia’s tropical north, Arnhem Land has long been one of the epicenters of the modern Aboriginal art movement. The art of the region opens a window onto another world: a world in which ancestral spirits remain a constant presence in the land. These narratives contain all the drama of a Hollywood epic: struggles over life and death, love and lust, all set within the simmering magic of the tropics. Focusing on the world-class holdings of the Kluge-Ruhe Aboriginal Art Collection this lecture explores the development of the art of Arnhem Land from 1911 to the present.
