    a| "Earth Works is an exhibition of (mainly) contemporary Indigenous Australian pottery from diverse locations in Aboriginal Australia. While prior to colonisation there was no vernacular tradition of Australian pottery, increasing numbers of Indigenous ceramists are now turning their hands to this art form. By creating 'earth works' of singular felicity through which they assert a range of regional and socio-political identities, Indigenous potters are making this introduced practice their own. The exhibition is sure to disturb certain preconceived notions and assumptions about what constitutes Aboriginal art"--Provided by publisher.
