In order to get more accurate results, our search has the following Google-Type search functionality:
If you use '+' in front of a word, then that word will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry +Potter will return results with the word 'Potter'.
If you use '-' in front of a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry -Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
If you use 'AND' between two words, then both of those words will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry AND Potter will return results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'OR' between two words, then bth of those words may or may not be present in the search results.
ex: Harry OR Potter will return results with just 'Harry', results with just 'Potter' and results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'NOT' before a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry NOT Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
Placing '""' around words will perform a phrase search. The search results will contain those words in that order.
ex: "Harry Potter" will return any results with 'Harry Potter' in them, but not 'Potter Harry'.
Using '*' in a word will perform a wildcard search. The '*' signifies any number of characters. Searches can not start with a wildcard.
ex: Pot*er will return results with words starting with 'Pot' and ending in 'er'. In this case, 'Potter' will be a match.
Tiwi visual and performative cultural practices have existed for many millennia, but it was only during the twentieth century that a wider public became aware of the magnificence of Tiwi painting and sculpture. This compelling publication celebrates this unique art of the Tiwi people of Melville and Bathurst Islands - the Tiwi Islands of the Northern Territory - and explores the dynamic trajectory of it across time and across media.
Edited by Judith Ryan AM, Senior Curator, Indigenous Art at the NGV, this publication is a scholarly, in-depth study of Tiwi art and culture and of many of its major artists. With contributions from Tina Baum, James Bennett, Kaye Brown, Johnathon World Peace Bush, Stephen Gilchrist, Will Heathcote, Jonathan Jones, Joy Murphy-Wandin AO, Joy Naden, Genevieve O'Callaghan, Cara Pinchbeck, Patrick Freddy Puruntatameri, Hannah Raisin, Una Rey, Myles Russell-Cook, Judith Ryan AM, Tobias Titz, Anne Virgo OAM, Pedro Wonaeaemirri and Michelle Pulutuwayu Woody Minnapinni, TIWI: Art & Artists provides an incisive view of a rich and complex art.
Published to coincide with the exhibition TIWI held at The Ian Potter Centre: NGV Australia, 13 November 2020 - 8 March 2021
