Roadworks: Automobility and belonging in Aboriginal Art

Frederick, Ursula


As a growing corpus of contemporary art reveals, automobility has a strong presence in Aboriginal cultural expression. The manner in which this theme is conveyed and what meanings these works communicate vary considerably across media, style and individual treatment. I would like to suggest that as a collective, these �roadworks� might reveal as much about Aboriginal relations to �Country�(2) as any other Aboriginal art of place.
