2006 second semester seminar series: 'Aboriginal Art and Identity'

A significant number of AIATSIS Research grantees, staff and visitors are working on projects which explore different aspects of Indigenous art production and how this production relates to personal and group identity. These projects range from histories of major art movements in the Western Desert (such as Ernabella Arts), the increasing family involvement in bark productions from Arnhem Land, the management and rejuvenation of Wandjina images from the south-western Kimberley by native title holders, and the depiction of Indigenous society by Indigenous photographers through to an analysis of different graphic vocabularies used in pre- and post-contact Aboriginal rock-art. One of the common themes to emerge from these different studies is how individual artists and groups create and maintain their identity.
