Samenvatting

With an approach that is irreverent but at the same time scholarly and searching, Dr Traudi Allen engagingly explores the way art history has unwittingly supported the establishment of Australian myths and stereotypes: the outback type, the egalitarian, the suburbanite. How has Kelly contributed to art and how has art responded to Steve Irwin? With an interdisciplinary approach that draws on history, current political debates and the broad visual culture, she also outlines the visual contribution to the subversion of such standard mythologies as the ardent nationalist and the friendly Aussie. Through studies of work ranging from the performance art of Mike Parr to the painting of Howard Arkley and Vivienne Binnes, television ads, contemporary Australian film, and cartoons by Leunig and Nicholson, she details the transformation of the Australian nationalist myth.
