Beyond Australia

The Art of Australia
In the final episode, Beyond Australia, Edmund tells the story of how Indigenous art and modern abstract art combined to push Australian art forward. During the 70s Australian art was restricted by conservative forces within. When Australian artists returned from Europe and America with new ideas, the cultural landscape become a battlefield. Then came Papunya, a remote Indigenous community where a revolutionary art movement was born, attracting international acclaim, and helping Australian art take its place on the world stage.
