Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Art: Collection Highlights
|Author:||National Gallery of Australia|
The National Gallery of Australia holds the largest collection of Australian Indigenous art in the world. Written by Indigenous authors and curators and other experts in the field, this new book features works of art which highlight the diversity, richness and excellence of the Gallery’s collection. They range from rare 19th-century objects, historical and contemporary bark paintings, fabrics, dance masks, and headdresses to contemporary politically charged works by artist working in towns and cities in the 21st century.
