"Art in Australia is defined by issues that are specific to this country's condition: a colonized continent largely inhabited in the last two hundred years by the British and Europeans who brought to it their histories and traditions and who had to imagine their relationship to this new land and its indigenous people. This book traces the history of the art made by the settlers of Australia. From the colonials trying to re-create the image of home in a foreign landscape to the postmodernist artists confronting and defining the homelessness of Australia, the meaning of 'Australia' may have shifted, but has never been exhausted. In this new critical overview, Christopher Allen surveys the art of Australia in six provocative chapters focusing on artists and artistic movements against the background of Colonization, Settlement, Unsettlement, The Uninhabitable, Escape Routes and Homeless. A timeline and a bibliography provide essential reference." -back cover.
