The exhibition of Art + Soul, Hetti Perkins’ dramatic new survey of Indigenous art and artists opened this weekend at the Art Gallery of New South Wales; the tripartite ABC documentary premiers Thursday night. Intriguing reviews have already appeared in The Age (Fluid face of art and soul, October 2), The Australian (Joining the dots, October 2) and the Sydney Morning Herald (Curator unveils a triple treat, September 29), while even the Voice of America has reported on a re-enactment of the Gurrir Gurrir ceremony at the Art Gallery (Rare dance showcases Indigenous art festival in Australia, October 2). I’ve [Will Owen] begun to work my way through the extraordinary and extravagant catalog of the exhibition (MUP/Miegunyah Press, 2010), a hefty wonder full of glorious photography, expert essays, and substantive interviews with the artists themselves.
