Brief description The Reception of Aboriginal Art in the Twentieth Century. The investigation will analyse:\r\n* the reception of Aboriginal art during the twentieth century, and will demonstrate the extent of national investment in this reception; \r\n* the subtle and often ambivalent relationship between the disciplines of anthropology and art (including art historians, artists or curators) in the reception of Aboriginal art, as well as being alert to other factors (eg Aboriginal activism and political processes);\r\n* the historical importance of discourses of identity and nationhood in the reception of Aboriginal art;\r\n* the possibilities for re-thinking the received histories of Australian art in light of shifts in the reception of Aboriginal art.\r\n
