The San Antonio Museum of Art will present an exhibition of contemporary Aboriginal art, titled "Of Country and Culture: The Lam Collection of Contemporary Australian Aboriginal Art." The exhibition is drawn from a collection gifted to the Museum earlier this year by long-time supporters May and Victor Lam.

With approximately 75 works on view, the exhibition explores the contemporary application of a range of Aboriginal artistic traditions - from sand paintings, to body painting, to grave poles - to demonstrate similar cultural ties to land, heritage and visual communication. The collection includes a significant number of works by women artists, representing a recent change from their historical exclusion from the contemporary painting movement in Australia.
