Between Indigenous Australia and Europe: John Mawurndjul
|Series:||Art Histories in Context|
Australian Indigenous art is increasingly drawing the attention of international audiences, in part because of the amazing stories the artists tell of human creativity. John Mawurndjul is an Aboriginal artist whose work is collected and displayed in art museums and galleries throughout the world. The authors here debate questions such as how art should be viewed and approached in intercultural terms.
"This book makes a valuable contribution to Australian art on a number of fronts. The authors each bring their highly respected expertise to the book, which sets Mawurndjul's work, as well as the work of many others, in an international context. A very valuable resource." -- Hetti Perkins, Curator, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art, Art Gallery of New South Wales
