L’univers aborigène émerveille et intrigue. Aux yeux des non-initiés, il est chargé de mystère. Les premiers habitants d’Australie sont les héritiers depuis 65.000 ans de la plus ancienne culture ininterrompue au monde.

From 22 October 2021 to 29 May 2022, the Art & History Museum will be exhibiting Australian Aboriginal art for the first time. The world of the Aboriginals is a wonderful and fascinating universe, filled with secrets for the non-initiated. The First Peoples of Australia are the heirs to the oldest continuous culture in the world, which dates back 65.000 years. However rich, this culture is not expressed in architecture, written texts or artefacts. Today, as in the past, ancestral knowledge is exclusively passed on from one generation to the next by means of an oral tradition centred around rituals and ceremonies, in which the concept of ‘Dreamings’ or ‘Dreamtime’ plays a vital role.
