Summary

Since 2002, David and Anita Angel have gifted more than 100 contemporary Indigenous works to the NGV. Artist's Hand: Collectors' Eye: The Angel Gift presents a selection of these works by senior male and female artists from the Western Desert, the Kimberley and the Tiwi Islands, from 1990 to now. This generously illustrated volume, featuring insightful texts by Judith Ryan, Senior Curator of Indigenous Art, and donors Anita and David Angel, surveys the immense change in Indigenous art practice. Notably the emergence of Indigenous women as artists of consequence and invention, as well as, expression that has enabled Pintupi male artists to distil the specificity of place. Artist's Hand: Collectors' Eye: The Angel Gift conveys the power and spiritual aura of Indigenous art and affirms the importance of benefaction to the NGV's collection of Indigenous art. Exhibition at NGV Australia from 31 May 16 - Nov 16.
