New Edition

28 July 2014

How Aborigines Invented the Idea of Contemporary Art was the first anthology to chronicle the global critical reception of Aboriginal art since the early 1980s, when the art world began to understand it as contemporary art. Featuring ninety-six authors—including art critics and historians, curators, art centre co-ordinators and managers, artists, anthropologists, sociologists, philosophers and novelists—it conveys a diversity of thinking and approach. The first edition from 2011 is sold out and we have just printed a second one. Please order your copy of How Aborigines Invented the Idea of Contemporary Art from our online store.
