Overview

Islands in the Sun reveals how the arts have flourished among indigenous societies in the Australian region since the 1960s and how the arts have been a potent force in maintaining cultural identity. There has been a renewed interest in traditional images, designs, and narratives along with the evolution of new images and stories, reflecting the changing times and the introduction of new technologies.

Showcasing the talents of artists from Australia and Australasia, this handsome volume highlights the vitality and diversity of the region’s indigenous art. It brings together an extensive collection of prints by individual artists that illustrate the success of collaborative ventures between artists from differing cultural backgrounds. Included are linocuts and woodcuts, screenprints and lithographs by the indigenous peoples of Arnhem Land, Bathurst and Melville Islands, Torres Strait Islands, Papua New Guinea, Aotearoa New Zealand, New Caledonia, Niue, and Samoa, as well as works which cross traditional geographic and cultural boundaries.
