Article about X Strata Indigenous Art Awards, 2007.
Quoted from the article:
All in all, this is a rich and wonderful exhibition, but sadly misnamed. How much longer are supremely accomplished artists such as 63-year-old Phyllis Ningarmara, or Wanyubi Marika with a high degree of celebrity and an internet presence as long as your arm, or Adam Hill with numerous solo and group shows to his credit, going to be considered 'emerging'? The Xstrata Award is a great initiative, but it should be called the award for Recent Developments in Indigenous Art.
