An important overseas exhibition of 100 works by seven celebrated indigenous artists is currently on display at the Australian Embassy in Paris. The artists include Kathleen Petyarre, Marrnyuala Munungurr, Rosella Namok, Gloria Petyarre, Dave Ross Pwere, Mabel Juli and Jimmy An Gunguna.

The exhibition is the second in a series of exhibitions of Aboriginal art at the Australian Embassy prior to the inauguration in 2006 of the Quai Branly Museum. These exhibitions aim to build on the momentum of an art movement that is today finding a place in the major private and public collections of Europe and the world.

The exhibition was organised by Austrade and included the participation of Galerie Arts d’Australie -Stéphane Jacob; and Gallerie dad - Alison Dalbis, in France.
