Phillips after 5: Mateship Edition

Phillips after 5: Mateship Edition

Phillips after 5 series occurs on the first Thursday of the month at The Phillips Collection in Washington, DC.

As part of the latest collection 'Marking the Infinite: Contemporary Women Artists from Aboriginal Australia' and the 100 years of Mateship between Australia and the United States marked on July 4th, this Mateship themed event will feature a lively mix of activities, art and entertainment, including live music, food, and cash bar. Come find your mate at Phillips after 5!

About the collection: Marking the Infinite spotlights nine leading Aboriginal Australian women artists: Nonggirrnga Marawili, Wintjiya Napaltjarri, Yukultji Napangati, Angelina Pwerle, Lena Yarinkura, Gulumbu Yunupingu, Nyapanyapa Yunupingu, Carlene West, and Regina Pilawuk Wilson. The artists are from remote Aboriginal communities across Australia, and the subjects of their art are broad, yet each work is an attempt to grapple with fundamental questions of existence, asking us to slow down and pay attention to the natural world. 

Advance ticket purchase is strongly advised as this popular event tends to sell out. Members always admitted free, no reservation needed.

About Mateship: July 4th commemorates 100 years of Mateship between Australia and the United States. The date marks the anniversary of the first time our troops fought side by side in an offensive action, at the Battle of Hamel on France’s Western Front.
