This is the catalogue of an exhibition of Australian Aboriginal art at the Hood Museum, Dartmouth College, New Hampshire. The works being exhibited are the gift of two collectors, Will Owen and Harvey Wagner created the collection of Aboriginal Art. As well as including compelling images of the artwork, it offers 10 fascinating essays on aspects of its aesthetics, its history and its socio-political post-colonial context.

It’s by no means Contemporary Aboriginal Art for Dummies. Each of the contributors speaks from deep knowledge, and many Aboriginal voices are quoted. But I find it hard to imagine how a single book could do a better job of informing me on the subject. ( )
