Aboriginal Art in France
Thanks to a partnership between the Harold Mitchell Foundation and the Australia Council, the 750 square-metre rooftop of the Musée du quai Branly in Paris will soon be covered with a spectacular painting created by a talented Indigenous artist.
The Musée sits directly under the Eiffel Tower. From the top of the Eiffel Tower, Parisians and visitors to Paris will be able to experience Australian aboriginal art. The result will be a rare opportunity is to share our special Indigenous culture and artistic skill with the almost seven million people who visit the Eiffel Tower ever year.
This project follows from a successful partnership between the Harold Mitchell Foundation, the Australia Council for the Arts and the Musée du quai Branly to showcase great Australian artists including the work of Paddy Nyunkuny Bedford, John Mawurndjul, Ningura Napurrula, Lena Nyadbi, Michael Riley, Judy Watson, Tommy Watson and Gulumbu Yunupingu in a permanent Musée exhibition.
