Aboriginal art is world renowned when it comes to dot paintings. There is however an incredible diversity of Aboriginal art outside of this style. Focusing on philosophy and culture, this interview based program explores: what is meant by Aboriginal art', inspiration and influence, interpretation and symbolism, meanings and messages, and the cultural functions of art. We talk with urban and traditional Aboriginal artists from across the country including Brook Andrew, Bindi Cole and desert artist Otto, as well as Australian art historian Dr Susan Lowish and curator Phillip Batty. Perfect for senior secondary and TAFE in the fields of fine art, art history and cultural studies, this production digs beneath the surface to explore the rich complexity and cultural significance of Aboriginal art practices.
