My Country, I Still Call Australia Home: Contemporary Art from Black Australia
Published to coincide with a major exhibition of the same name, My Country features the work of over 130 artists around Australia and makes an important contribution to writing on Aboriginal art. Interviews with exhibiting artists highlight their experiences and approach to art practice, while essays by respected writers Hetti Perkins, Brenda L Croft, Glenn Iseger-Pilkington and Bruce McLean provide insights into the connections Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists have with land and country.
The Sacred Hill by Gordon Hookey
The Sacred Hill story book is published by QAGOMA's Children’s Art Centre in conjunction with ‘Kangaroo Crew’, an interactive exhibition by Indigenous artist Gordon Hookey. The book features Hookey’s own narrative illustrated by 25 paintings, introducing young readers to four kangaroos — Blue, Treez, Potsy and Rocko — who once lived together on the sacred hill. When their home is threatened by the arrival of myna birds, the kangaroos are forced to leave and must work together to return home. The Sacred Hill follows the kangaroos on their journey, showing that courage and friendship can go a long way.
The Sacred Hill is the Gallery’s sixth Children’s Art Centre publication. It also features fun kangaroo character profiles and activities for children to do at home or at school.
