This concise survey has established itself as a superlative introduction to the full diversity of Aboriginal art

From all parts of the continent, indigenous Australian artists have built on traditions stretching back 50,000 years, working in a variety of contexts from the sacred and secret realm of ceremony to more public spheres. Work across all media is included, from painting, sculpture, engraving, constructions and weaving to photography, printmaking and textile design.

The story of Aboriginal art is brought into the 21st century in this revised and expanded third edition with a new chapter that maps the latest developments across each of Australia’s regions. The impact of urban living, the growth of local art centres that support the work of indigenous artists, and the rise of women artists all testify to Aboriginal art’s continued dynamism and vitality.

Wally Caruana is an independent curator and consultant on Aboriginal art and was formerly Senior Curator of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art at the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra, from 1984 to 2001. He has edited several books and catalogues on Aboriginal art and curated a number of major exhibitions in Australia and internationally.
