'Boomalli Aboriginal Artists Co-operative was established by ten Aboriginal artists; Bronwyn Bancroft, Euphemia Bostock, Brenda Croft, Fiona Foley, Fernanda Martens, Arone Meeks, Tracey Moffatt, Avril Quaill, Michael Riley and Jeffrey Samuels. The name 'Boomalli' is taken from three of the Aboriginal language groups in New South Wales and means 'to strike or make a mark'. Boomalli is committed to presenting work by Indigenous artists and communities whose work is under-represented by mainstream galleries and institutions'.
