Introduction
In 1984 the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) allocated its first acquisition funds for the purchase of contemporary Aboriginal Art and opened an Oceanic Gallery for exhibitions of Aboriginal Art. Some 36 years later it has a vast collection ranging from aboriginal artefacts to aboriginal works on textiles, canvas and paper as well as other media.

From Bark to Neon: Indigenous Art from the NGV Collection.
