Jeremiah Bonson (Jinang/Marung peoples), Warrah Bun Bun, 2010

As a direct response to the UN International Year of Indigenous Languages, the National Gallery of Australia is touring Body Language, an exhibition which explores the identity of Australia’s diverse Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and communities.

For many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island people, identity is a source of strength and reliance 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.

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.

A NGA touring exhibition.
