Welcome to AboriginalArtDirect. Our goal is to provide you with a thought-provocative newsletter on the events and trends in the industry.

In the feature article of this edition we talk to Vivien Johnson, University Professor, author and curator about her long running obsession with Aboriginal art and her current exhibition Papunya Painting: Out of the Desert. An exhibition she has curated for the National Museum of Australia, currently showing in Sydney.

Jeremy Eccles reviews Beyond Sacred, the new book about the Laverty Collection which started in the late 80’s.
