Description - Before Time Today: Reinventing Tradition In Aurukun Aboriginal Art by Sally Butler

It explains how Aurukun art production absorbed the colonial impact of mission and government intervention throughout the 20th century and provides the powerful visual symbols for the political struggles of the Wik people to regain land ownership and social justice. Extensive high-quality reproductions of Aurukun's charismatic carvings, weavings, and paintings illustrate the inspiring connections between art and life, and demonstrate how a reinvention of artistic tradition fuels creativity and innovation in keeping culture relevant and vibrant.
