'Dreaming Their Way' accompanies the first major US presentation of art by indigenous women of Australia. It showcases 33 artists' important contributions to contemporary painting and represents communitites across the continent. The intensely colorful canvases and extremely intricate bark paintings draw on ancient stories - or Dreamings - and symbols, as well as each artist's deep connection to the land. It is this link to ancient tradition that makes Australian Aboriginal art unique.
