Product Description

Mythscapes

Mythscapes tells the story of the birth of the rich and complex contemporary art form which is giving Aboriginal people a new sense of dignity and purpose, and is convincing white Australians and the world to perceive them and this continent with different eyes. Aboriginal culture is alive – and dynamically changing. Contrary to common belief, their future does not lie in the past. So often maltreated, ignored and downtrodden, the dispossessed first Australians from the arid Central and Western Desert regions are speaking eloquently in art of their own making. Mythscapes explores how Aboriginal people evolved a unique contemporary form of expression, using European materials but based on their own inviolate, mythologically sanctioned designs.
