Black Art White Walls - the art life
theartlife.com.au/2014/black-art-white-walls/21st February 2014Toward the end of last year the new Grace Cossington Smith Gallery, named after one of Sydney’s best-known modernists, opened in Wahroonga. Black Art White Walls is just the second exhibition in this space.
http://news.aboriginalartdirectory.com/2014/02/the-dealer-is-the-devil.php13th February 2014Adrian Newstead is probably uniquely qualified to write a history of that contentious business, the market for Australian Aboriginal art. He may once have planned to be an agricultural scientist, but then he mutated into a craft shop owner, Aboriginal art and craft dealer, art auctioneer, writer, marketer, promoter and finally Indigenous art politician – his views sought frequently by the media. He's been around the scene since 1981 and says he held his first Tiwi craft exhibition at the gloriously named Coo-ee Emporium in 1982. He's met and argued with most of the players since then, having particularly strong relations with the Tiwi Islands, Lajamanu and one of the few inspiring Southern Aboriginal leaders, Guboo Ted Thomas from the Yuin lands south of Sydney.
