Provides a comprehensive exploration of Aboriginal art forms, particularly painting. Students develop an understanding and appreciation of Aboriginal creative expression in traditional and contemporary Aboriginal cultures. Apparent changes in Aboriginal creative expression are examined, including those brought about by the influence of market forces. These are considered in the context of how any such changes have affected the meaning, purpose and significance of the artistic forms.
The unit also examines key issues relating to the production and marketing of Aboriginal art forms, including the issues of copyright, reproduction, and appropriation. Throughout the unit students will develop an understanding of regional variation and will learn to identify artwork from various regions.
