The National Museum of Australia’s award-winning exhibition travels to Plymouth this autumn/winter.

Experience ancient stories from the world’s oldest continuing culture, told through more than 300 paintings and objects by over 100 different artists.

This is an epic journey that crosses three states, three deserts and some 500,000 square kilometres. With ceramics, paintings, sculpture, installation, film and the world’s highest-resolution travelling dome, come and immerse yourself in a once-in-a-lifetime exhibition that uses the power of art and culture to connect us across time zones and international borders.

Central to the exhibition are the Seven Sisters Dreaming stories – ancient creation sagas of the Australian continent – and the aim to preserve them for future generations.

'Songlines: Tracking the Seven Sisters' is part of the UK/Australia Season 2021/22 – a major programme of cultural exchange between the two countries.
