Reko Rennie (Kamilaroi/Gamilaraay/Gummaroi) from Melbourne, VIC, spent two weeks at the University of Virginia's Kluge-Ruhe Aboriginal Art Museum where he painted the interior walls of the museum's rotating gallery between January 17th and the 21st. The exhibit, titled “Patternation,” opened to the public on Friday, January 28th. Rennie’s exhibit has been curated by Stephen Gilchrist (Yamatji), Curator of Indigenous Art at the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne. According to Gilchrist, the exhibit title “Patternation” refers both to the repetitive “patter” of national discourse concerning Indigenous people in both Australia and the US, and to the bold, geometric patterns used by Rennie.

This is an overview of USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
