ABORIGINAL SCREEN-PRINTED TEXTILES FROM AUSTRALIA'S TOP END

Aboriginal Screen-Printed Textiles from Australia's Top End presents the work of contemporary Australian textile artists working at five Aboriginal-owned art centers in the Northern Territory: Tiwi Design; Jilamara Arts and Crafts Association; Injalak Arts and Crafts Aboriginal Corporation; Babbarra Women's Centre; and Merrepen Arts; Culture and Language. This book traces the history of textile screen printing at these art centers; from its beginnings in the late 1960s to its recent emergence as a vibrant contemporary art form for Aboriginal expression. A profile of each art center is followed by representative artworks. Essays by Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal scholars; curators; and practitioners discuss the history; inspiration; and practical processes underlying these striking creations; the ways screen-printed textile designs express the artists' cultures; identities; and connections to lands; and the art centers' collaborations with fashion and interior designers.
