local koorie kids at Art Unit by 


this is tiny aboriginal girl poses in the artwork at Art Unit during an exhibition by Michael Hill sometime in the early eighties.

Eventually they were given their own little studio out the back and here they were perfect little mimic’s turning out artworks and tape recordings in total harmony with whatever else was going on at the time… they were never rebuffed by the culture they found at Art Unit but rather found it something they could engage with … and that’s exactly what they did…
