Australian season

Supported by

Rio Tinto

A series of exhibitions and events focusing on Australia

The season includes a specially commissioned space presenting Australian biodiversity in the Museum’s forecourt, in collaboration with the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, an exhibition of modern Australian works, most of which have never been seen in public before, and a display of beautifully handcrafted baskets, created by Indigenous Australians.
