Rabat : L’art textile aborigène australien à l’honneur

Australian aboriginal textile art that attracts attention

The exhibition, which runs until October 1, features impressive hangings of hand-printed textiles and a series of prints by artists paying homage to the sacred stories of their ancestral lands and their people.
