The beautiful Domain House in the Botanic Gardens often plays home to contemporary art exhibitions you'd happily contend with Punt Road traffic to get to — and its new exhibition Border Lines is no different. With Linden New Art calling the house home while their Acland Street space gets a reno, the exhibition brings together a collection of celebrated painters from the Papulankutja and Warakurna art communities, as well as the fibre artists of the Tjanpi Desert Weavers.

The exhibition focuses on the artistic foundations of the tri-state border of WA, SA and the NT and explore themes of country, community and culture — it's a reminder of the gravity and importance of indigenous art within Australian (and international) contemporary art.

A meet the curator event will also be held with Juliette Hanson on August 24, where she will give a guided tour and talk in detail about the art centres of the tri-state area.
