Presented by the Berndt Museum of AnthropologyOut of the Boxes and into the Desert explores the Berndt Museum of Anthropology's collection of paintings from the Central Desert.
Following on from a recent storage project, the exhibition seeks to provide access to works of art that have been inaccessible for decades. These works include stories of ancestral beings that travelled across country, through wormholes and into the stars.
