Abstract

Catalogue of an exhibition held at the National Museum of Australia, 22nd August - 12th October, 2008. The Genius of Emily Kame Kngwarreye tells the story of this senior Anmatyerr woman who became one of Australia's greatest contemporary artists. Essays by national and international commentators offer readers different ways to approach and interpret these artworks, which were created in an environment far away from the influence of the Western Art tradition, and yet have been highly acclaimed and recognised as modernist masterpieces. Edited by Margo Neale.
