TIWI: Art & Artists | Author: Judith Ryan
Back in stock soon.
Tiwi visual and performative cultural practices have existed for many millennia, but it was only during the twentieth century that a wider public became aware of the magnificence of Tiwi painting and sculpture. This compelling publication celebrates this unique art of the Tiwi people of Melville and Bathurst Islands - the Tiwi Islands of the Northern Territory - and explores the dynamic trajectory of it across time and across media.
Edited by Judith Ryan AM, Senior Curator, Indigenous Art at the NGV, this publication is a scholarly, in-depth study of Tiwi art and culture and of many of its major artists. With contributions from Tina Baum, James Bennett, Kaye Brown, Johnathon World Peace Bush, Stephen Gilchrist, Will Heathcote, Jonathan Jones, Joy Murphy-Wandin AO, Joy Naden, Genevieve O'Callaghan, Cara Pinchbeck, Patrick Freddy Puruntatameri, Hannah Raisin, Una Rey, Myles Russell-Cook, Judith Ryan AM, Tobias Titz, Anne Virgo OAM, Pedro Wonaeaemirri and Michelle Pulutuwayu Woody Minnapinni, TIWI: Art & Artists provides an incisive view of a rich and complex art.
