Australian Indigenous Identity & Contemporary Life
Spaning the 1960s to the present this collection expresses contemporary Indigenous notions of perceiving, understanding, and knowing the world. It reflects the profound and dramatic changes in the Australian social, cultural, economic and political landscape in Indigenous affairs, and highlights Indigenous agency in affecting social change.
It encompasses a diverse array of material including artwork, prints and posters, ceramics and jewellery, children's toys, 'traditional' crafts, images, film oral histories, pamphlets, brochures and ephemera. The collection strengthens the voice of Indigenous people in expressing their identity and commentary on the past and the present, creating a social document.
