Description - Dollar Dreaming by Benjamin Genocchio

Dollar Dreaming explores how the Aboriginal art movement, born of isolation and deprivation in one of the remotest and harshest places on earth, has in little more than thirty years become a newly minted coin in the international art market, with paintings being exhibited and collected in Paris, Los Angeles and New York. In pursuit of the story, the author travels to visit and interview those individuals who are living through this extraordinary period of evolution - artists, dealers, curators, collectors, fakers and auction house staff - to convey through their words and experiences how the art form, and the international market for Aboriginal art, came alive. Dollar Dreaming is an authoritative, engaging and sometimes funny account of Aboriginal art today from one of Australia's most respected art critics.
