Raiki Wara: Long Cloth from Aboriginal Australia and the Torres Strait
National Gallery of Victoria, 1998 - Antiques & Collectibles - 132 pages
This important exhibition celebrates the use of an introduced medium, which has encouraged a daring break with tradition in contemporary Aboriginal and Toores Strait Islander art. In focussing on painted and printed textiles and on the last three decades, Raiki Wara draws attention to the contribution of indigenous artists throughout Australia who have made this new medium their own.
