Ancient creation saga first major exhibition for WA Museum Boola Bardip

Posted: November 5th, 2020

The first major exhibition for the new WA Museum Boola Bardip will celebrate Australia’s culture in showcasing Songlines: Tracking the Seven Sisters.

Songlines will share the story of the dramatic chase of the seven sisters from Roebourne in the Pilbara through 500,000 square kilometres of desert, including Martu and Ngaanyatjarra lands in the west, to the APY (Aṉangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara) Lands.

The exhibition is the culmination of more than five years of collaboration between Aboriginal communities and the National Museum of Australia (NMA). It features more than 300 paintings and objects plus song, dance, photography and multimedia.

The WA Museum Boola Bardip opens on November 21 with a nine-day festival, and entry to the exhibition is free of charge.
