‘The Aboriginal peoples of Australia have been making art for centuries, but only recently have their achievements been given the curatorial attention they deserve. This book examines the work of nine renowned Aboriginal artists, who transform traditional practices and lore into dynamic contemporary artworks. Each of these artists is represented in depth, with stunning reproductions and thoughtful analysis by art historians, curators, critics and anthropologists. These writings and illustrations introduce readers to the ways contemporary Aboriginal artists are forging a distinctive new path, creating some of the finest abstract paintings of our time. Published in association with the Nevada Museum of Art.’ – the publisher
