Unique in Europe: a museum dedicated to contemporary Aboriginal art from Australia. Get a taste of Down Under!
At the canal of Oudegracht you will find a bit of "Down Under", honoring the contemporary art of the original inhabitants of the Australian continent, the Aboriginals. The Aboriginal Art Museum Utrecht (AAMU) regularly offers thematical exhibitions along with the regular collection.
The power of wood
Opening Saturday April 25th is The power of wood, in which wooden objects get the center stage. Creating wooden objects stems from a long tradition in the Australian Aboriginal cultures. You will see sculptures, poles, a broad selection of paintings on tree bark and dazzling installations of richly decorated didgeridoos and objects such as boomerangs, bowls and shields.
Tour de France
Of course the famous international bicycling race, Tour de France, does not pass unnoticed; The projects "Art Bikes" and "Tour Down Under" connect art to cyclism. More details about these projects can be found on the AAMU website.
