1. Firstly, two links to the Australian National Gallery of Art's site. The gallery located in Canberra has an extraordinary collection of Aboriginal Art, with a relatively small space allocated to it's display. The institution has cu rated and put on display a number of important exhibitions over the years.
2. The Kluge-Ruhe Collection of Aboriginal Art at the University of Virginia, one of the best private collections Australian Aboriginal Art ever assembled. As part the University of Virginia, the Kluge-Ruhe Aboriginal Art Collection has undertaken a full program of rotating exhibits, public lectures, research on the collection, and education programs for children and adults.
3. The Aboriginal Art Museum in Utrecht, the Netherlands. The first museum of its type anywhere in Europe, arguably anywhere in the world. An institution devoted specifically to Australian Aboriginal Art with a permanent collection. Unfortunately the text is in Dutch.
4. Aboriginal Art Books available at amazon.com (search aboriginal art in the books category). Recommended reading would be Aboriginal Art (Art & Ideas) by Howard Morphy the best read on the ideas behind Aboriginal art practice and Aboriginal Art (The World of Art) by Wally Caruana former Curator of the NGA, the book is now somewhat dated over view of a broad range of styles of Aboriginal art, sort of an Aboriginal Art 101 course in a book. Beware some titles in this section are bogus. I'll gladly send feedback on any titles as I've read them all. E-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
5. AIATSIS, the Australian Institute for Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islander Studies, if you have serious research to do on Aboriginal cultural topics this site is an invaluable archival resource.
Collector and Aboriginal Art enthusiast Will Owen has really taken on the monumental task of commenting on the larger context of Aboriginal culture today with book reviews, film reviews, music reviews, exhibition reviews, commentary on political happenings. He has a keen eye and ear and a deft and thoughtful mind. There's a lot of useful and thought provoking info here for anyone interested in Aboriginal art and culture.
