Awaye! - The 25th Telstra National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art Award

A program on ABC radio's 'Radio National' about the 25th Telstra awards:

If the 25th National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art Award is anything to go by, there's a flowering in the Western Desert and Arnhem Land. But the decision by a group of seven Aboriginal art centres to withdraw their artists from competition has struck at the heart of the awards, otherwise known as the Telstras. Has it affected the quality and scope of the work in the award, or has it missed the mark? We ask the judges and the curator of the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory, which hosts the Telstra.
