Australian Aboriginal art is undoubtedly one of the most important and exciting art movements to emerge in recent times.
Born from and often influenced by ancient form, iconography and ceremony, contemporary Aboriginal art is changing the paradigm.
It’s historic and cultural significance often provides a deep, rich layer to spectacular current work in various media.
From it’s emergence to a broader public in the early 1970’s when elders commenced transposing age old iconography on to small wooden boards to current day ‘urban’ or ‘contemporary’ form, the uniqueness of Australian Indigenous art remains the link to and the representation of the oldest continuous living culture in the world.
Transcendent international exhibitions and installations by Aboriginal artists such as Ningura Napurula’s ceilings and Lena Nyadbi's work on the rooftop of the Musée du quai Branly in Paris, are a perfect example the art’s significance.
The museum’s president, Stéphane Martin, has been quoted as saying that the scale and prominence of Aboriginal art incorporated in the museum infrastructure is a direction reflection of the importance and interest for the art internationally.
Alison Haysey of artinterface has been involved with Aboriginal art for over 20 years, consulting and collecting.
She has curated several important exhibitions, notably at the Australian Embassy in Paris as well as other public and private institutions in France and established the galerie DAD, specialising in Australian Aboriginal art in suburban Paris.
