Since the 1970s Indigenous Australian artists have continually pushed and expanded their artistic practices and movements, and as a consequence our understandings of Indigenous Australian art and culture have grown markedly. The once established boundaries of authenticity were being broken and reconstructed by Indigenous artists expressing a range of Indigenous voices through diverse media. Today, individual artists continue to evolve and innovate in this spirit and their tenacity is reflected here in works which show the vitality of these diverse contemporary movements.
