Large, bold, and colorful, Indigenous Australian art—sometimes known as Aboriginal art—has impressed itself on the contemporary art scene, becoming one of the most popular arts in the world. In this book, Ian McLean tells the improbable story of how a culture once viewed as one of the most primitive in the world invented its own distinct forms of modernism and conquered the contemporary art world. Beginning with its collision with modernity in the late eighteenth century, McLean looks at Indigenous Australian art as a complex practice that brought the world’s oldest aesthetic traditions into the modern era. Taking readers beyond hype, cliché, and political correctness, he explores the different regional variations, styles, materials, and approaches, examining artists as wide-ranging as the Wanjina ancestors and anonymous rock artists of the early colonial period to the stars of the contemporary art scene such as Emily Kngwarreye and Gordon Bennett. Beautifully illustrated, this book offers not just a stunning introduction to this rich artistic tradition but a way of rethinking modern and contemporary art writ large.

This comprehensive survey uniquely covers both Aboriginal art and that of European Australians, providing a revealing examination of the interaction between the two. Painting, bark art, photography, rock art, sculpture, and the decorative arts are all fully explored to present the rich texture of Australian art traditions. Well-known artists such as Margaret Preston, Rover Thomas, and Sidney Nolan are all discussed, as are the natural history illustrators, Aboriginal draughtsmen, and pastellists, whose work is only now being brought to light by new research. Taking the European colonization of the continent in 1788 as his starting point, Sayers highlights important issues concerning colonial art and women artists in this fascinating new story of Australian art.

Subtle and wide-ranging in its account, this study explores the impact of Australian art in Britain in the two decades following the end of World War II and preceding the 'Swinging Sixties'. In a transitional period of decolonization in Britain, Australian painting was briefly seized upon as a dynamic and reinvigorating force in contemporary art, and a group of Australian artists settled in London where they held centre stage with group and solo exhibitions in the capital's most prestigious galleries. The book traces the key influences of Sir Kenneth Clark, Bernard Smith and Bryan Robertson in their various (and varying) roles as patrons, ideologues, and entrepreneurs for Australian art, as well as the self-definition and interaction of the artists themselves. Simon Pierse interweaves multiple issues of the period into a cohesive historical narrative, including the mechanics of the British art world, the limited and frustrating cultural scene of 1950s Australia, and the conservative influence of Australian government bodies. Publishing for the first time archival material, letters, and photographs previously unavailable to scholars either in Britain or Australia, this book demonstrates how the work of expatriate Australian artists living in London constructed a distinct vision of Australian identity for a foreign market.

Peripheral Vision: Contemporary Australian Art 1970-1994 is an introduction to the ideas current in Australian art from the 1970s onwards, providing a summary of issues that are still in flux. The broad narrative of recent visual practice is mapped, illuminated by discussions of individual artists and of the events, galleries, writers and international debates that have played a significant part in the development of recent Australian art. The progressive Australian art of the 1970s - often deliberately ephemeral and confrontational in nature, and as a result often neglected in art museums and histories - is reappraised. The 1970s work of artists such as Mike Parr, Bonita Ely, Aleks Danko, Domenico de Clario, Vivienne Binns and Robert Rooney provides the background against which subsequent developments are discussed. In the ensuing decades a diversity of styles, media and ideas have flourished, coexisting to create the stimulating and complex Australian art scene of today. As they did in the 1970s, theoretical writings continue to play a large part in raising and elaborating the issues taken up by artists. The relevance of postmodern and postcolonial ideas within an Australian context is discussed, with reference to local artists including Imants Tillers, Juan Davila, Susan Norrie, Narelle Jubelin, Tim Johnson and Pansy Napangati. Peripheral Vision steers the reader through the fascinating field of recent Australian art, with detailed description and analysis of works, including paintings, photography, performances and installations.
