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.
Now open, The world is not a foreign land brings together work by Timothy Cook, Djambawa Marawili, Ngarra, Rusty Peters, Freda Warlapinni and Nyapanyapa Yunupingu. Crossing three geographically and culturally distinct regions—the Tiwi Islands, the Kimberley, and North-eastern Arnhem Land—each artist presents sometimes strikingly different perspectives on what constitutes Indigenous contemporary art.
