The Magicians Hat: Togart 2009
With 30% of its population Aboriginal, the Northern Territory (NT) is a significantly different place to the southern coastal regions where most Australians live. So it should be no surprise that large numbers of Aboriginal artists are in the NT’s newest contemporary art prize, the Togart Contemporary Art Award. Last year they made up about 60% of the artists, this year 50% – which is the generally accepted estimate of the proportion of Aboriginal to non-Aboriginal artists in Australia.
