The next Aboriginal Art Reading Group will be held next Monday the 18th of November from 5 – 6pm in room 307 of the John Medley Building.
In recognition of the current exhibition of bark paintings from the Leonhard Adam and Donald Thomson collections at the Ian Potter Museum of Art, the following short readings have been chosen:
Leonhard Adam, “Has Australian Aboriginal Art a Future?”, Angry Penguins: Australian journal of literature and art, 1944, pp. 42 – 50.
Donald Thomson, “The Concept of ‘Marr’ in Arnhem Land’, Mankind, Vol. 10, Issue 1, June 1975, pp. 1–10.
We will also be discussing the recent issue of Broadsheet, ‘Let’s be polite about Aboriginal Art’. For more information see HERE
