Celebrating twenty years of this groundbreaking touring exhibition of Aboriginal paintings from northwest Australia from the Helen Read Collection.

Living in Walungurru (Kintore) in 1985 was the beginning of a deep appreciation for Aboriginal peoples and their art. Helen Read’s collection has been exhibited in Australia and internationally.
