AUSTRALIAN ARTISTS IN THE CONTEMPORARY MUSEUM. Jennifer Barrett and Jacqueline Millner. Ashgate Publishing, Farnham/Burlington, 2014. 180 pp. with 75 ills. (68 col.). 25 x 18 cm. LC 2013-41823 ISBN 9781409442493 In English.
Publisher's description: In Australia, the artist's engagement with the museum is traditionally regarded as having an important role in the colonial project but, as times have changed, the post-colonial viewpoint has come to the fore. The authors of Australian Artists and the Museum propose that the artists' engagement has moved from politically informed critique taking place in museums of fine art, towards a critique of the creation of knowledge taking place in non-art museums, assuming new forms, including the artist acting as curator, art interventions that highlight the use of taxonomic modes of display and categorization, and the engagement with the aesthetics of collections to suggest different readings of objects and artefacts.
