  • Telling stories: history and narrative in contemporary Aboriginal art

    Ian Abdulla, Gordon Bennett, Destiny Deacon, Fiona Foley, Leah King

    4 Aug 2001 to 30 Sep 2001
    Curator: Chris McAuliffe

    The widely known works of Western Desert artists have led many to assume that the narrative forms of Aboriginal art consist primarily of 'Dreamings'.

    Recent works by contemporary Aboriginal artists explore diverse forms of narrative—autobiography, cinema, history, new media, and video clips—using painting, photography, prints, and video.
