Frist Center members can attend a members-only tour on Friday, August 4 at noon.

Join Trinita Kennedy as she explores the immersive paintings and beguiling sculptures by the contemporary Australian Aboriginal artists featured in Ancestral Modern: Australian Aboriginal Art from the Kaplan & Levi Collection. Learn how artists have translated motifs from traditional Aboriginal art forms, such as rock and body painting, to acrylic paintings on canvas and other durable media that can be shared with people around the world.
