Dealer accused of selling fake Indigenous works

Posted by Aboriginal Art Directory | 28.07.08

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) has accused a far north Queensland art dealer of selling fake Indigenous artworks.

The ACCC alleges Doongal Aboriginal Art and Artefacts misrepresented the work of three non-Indigenous artists at its galleries in Kuranda and Cairns.

This continues on the back of the Four Corners report into the Aboriginal Art industry that aired the previous day.
