REPORT - Cooee Art MarketPlace November 16th 2017 Auction

Eighty-four Aboriginal artworks and fine Oceanic artefacts drawn from twenty private collections were offered at the Cooee Art MarketPlace’s first auction. Postponed from Tuesday 14 November after Tim Goodman’s Fine Art Bourse (FAB) online auction platform was taken down by a cyber attack launched in the Ukraine, the 16 November event moved from the beautiful marbled upper foyer of Chifley Tower to the Cooee Art white-walled and art-filled pop up space on bustling Oxford Street, Paddington.

The Dealer is the Devil

An Insider's History of the Aboriginal Art Trade
by Adrian Newstead OAM
foreword Djon Mundine OAMpublisher Brandl & Schlesinger

Part road trip, part memoir, part history, part political commentary, The Dealer is the Devil is illuminatingly thought-provoking and provocative. It is an incredibly exciting and fast paced account of the fluctuating fortunes and exponential success of the Aboriginal art movement, with all of the elements one would expect of a complex drama, played out on a national and international stage.

"Every rock, every hill, every water, I know that place backwards and forwards, up and down, inside out. It`s my country and I got names for every place."

Queenie McKenzie at Black Fellas Creek, Old Texas, 1995
