POWER + COLOUR
By Administrator | 18 February 2013
Power + Colour, a new book about the Indigenous art collection of Pat Corrigan AM was launched at QAGOMA on Saturday 9th February 2013. It follows the publication in 2008 of the first volume about Pat’s collection New beginnings : classic paintings from the Corrigan collection of 21st century Aboriginal art.
The new book, subtitled New Painting from the Corrigan Collection of 21st Century Aboriginal Art, and with text written by Jane Raffan “charts the history of Aboriginal art’s impact on Australian law, and explores the inextricable nexus of Aboriginal law and sense of self”.
Illustrations of 129 works of art from Pat’s collection, including paintings by 76 artists from more than 25 communities, epitomise the colour in contemporary Aboriginal painting while celebrating its power and diversity.
He concluded by paying tribute to Pat and his patronage of both artists and collecting institutions. We would add our thanks to that.
