Abstract

In this paper I wish to briefly establish the way in which the contemporary marketing of indigenous art as commodities has conceptual and organisational links with colonial practices. Having raised this phenomenon, I will focus on an innovative project by the Open Bite Australia Print Workshopi to illustrate a different approach to generating artworks and finding an audience for Aboriginal art, before assessing the implications of this ethical approach to the production and consumption of indigenous artworks. I will conclude by mentioning the international connections this approach has established.
