In 2016, AIATSIS acquired a tiny woven object only 16cm in diameter for our Art and Object Collection. Its small size belies the complex story behind its creation.
A new display has opened in the AIATSIS Reading Room featuring Aboriginalia from the Kerry Reed-Gilbert collection.
Now that four of the largest paintings in the AIATSIS Collection have been digitised, we have extremely detailed, colour accurate digital reproductions preserved for the future.
AIATSIS’ story will soon be etched on to its own possum skin cloak by renowned Yorta Yorta artist and cloakmaker, Lee Darroch. AIATSIS multimedia officer, Andrew Turner, went to visit Lee at her home studio to document its creation.
