AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Emily Kame Kngwarreye is one of the most important abstract painters of the 20th century and one of the most significant artists that Australia has ever produced. Emily’s strikingly modern and beautifully innovative works, created in an environment far away from the influence of the Western Art tradition, have been featured in over 100 exhibitions in the last decade and are housed in collections all over the world. This book has been published to support a major international exhibition, presented by the National Museum of Australia, that opened in Japan in 2007 and travels to Australia this year. Utopia: The Genius of Emily Kame Kngwarreye features over 120 works drawn from private, public and corporate collections around the world, telling the story of Emily Kame Kngwarreye as one of Australia’s greatest contemporary artists, and also giving some insight into her life as a senior Anmatyerre woman and a lifelong custodian of the desert country that inspired her work.'
