This is 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 96 authors-including art critics and historians, curators, artists, anthropologists, sociologists, philosophers and novelists-it conveys a diversity of thinking and approach. This highly anticipated anthology argues for a reevaluation of Aboriginal arts critical intervention into contemporary art since its seduction of the art world a quarter-century ago.
