As a direct response to the United Nation’s International Year of Indigenous Languages, the National Gallery of Australia is touring Body Language, exploring the identity of Australia’s diverse Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and communities. An exhibition for all the family, Body language explores the iconography of language as expressed through symbols and patterns and includes works that explore these themes.

“For many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island people, identity is a source of strength and resilience and there are many ways in which they identify: what they believe in, how they look, how they feel and how they see themselves in society,” says curator Kelli Cole.

MAC is running a Body Language School Holiday program on 20 and 21 January, where kids will be taken on a tour of the exhibition followed by a fun sculpture making workshop using a variety of materials. To book, click here.
