Published to coincide with a major exhibition of the same name, My Country features the work of over 130 artists around Australia and makes an important contribution to writing on Aboriginal art. Interviews with exhibiting artists highlight their experiences and approach to art practice, while essays by respected writers Hetti Perkins, Brenda L Croft, Glenn Iseger-Pilkington and Bruce McLean provide insights into the connections Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists have with land and country. Arranged according to the exhibition’s themes — my country, my history, my life — this publication is rich in imagery, ideas and narrative.
