Comment on National Aboriginal Art Gallery: Anzac Oval off the table by Evelyne Roullet.

Last evening was an eye opener, showing the ignorance of Aboriginal Culture by all levels of government.
The Custodians get acknowledged at the opening of any/every meeting, but get totally put aside when it comes to making decisions about their land.
No need to wonder why the young Aborigines are lawless when they see the luck of respect given to their elders.

National Aboriginal Art Gallery: Anzac Oval off the table
@ Michael Dean, I do not think we can beat Quay Branly Museum.
It houses a collection of 3500 indigenous artifacts and artwork from around the world. But Australia’s contribution is unique: apart from 107 pieces in the permanent collection, eight works by Aboriginal artists have been engraved into the museum’s front wall, entrances and ceilings.
Through an ingenious system of mirrors and by extending the paintings onto the exterior window frames, all bar one of the works can be seen through glass from the street. Lit up at night, they make a 24-hour exhibition of Aboriginal art in Paris.
The Aboriginal contribution to the museum is so great that artist Judy Watson, whose work is engraved into the glass and stone of the front wall, says it is as if the artists “are swallowing the building. We are looking out on the street, we are everywhere.”
The museum rooftop display shows Indigenous artist Lena Nyadbi’s work to the world.
The installation is designed to be visible from several different levels of the nearby Eiffel Tower, which draws in around seven million visitors every year.
It will even be visible from space, thanks to satellite mapping technology.

@Jones “The gallery must be viable, it must draw tourists and help local businesses.”
Does anyone know what is going in the gallery? To draw tourists it must have art/artifacts that cannot be seen anywhere else in the world and most of all be supported by the local artists.
“Ryan … was always going to support the Anzac Oval proposal.” If Gunner and Ryan were dead set on Anzac oval, why waste the taxpayers’ money in survey, committees,costly publicity? Especially when the NT is broke and in debts.
“The Aboriginal group, never having to consider profitability in their lives as they are endlessly in the Government’s funding trough …”
Some are taxes and rates payers and they are not the only ones shirking responsibility and living off the efforts of others.

Air traffic: Looking down on Alice
“There will now be less capacity for Centralians to travel directly to Cairns and Perth.”
It has been like this for a longtime: Qantas wanting to fill up its planes had Cairn – Perth directed to Alice Springs with a feeble excuse and Alice Springs Perth cancelled with another excuse.
Then, everybody was put on a Melbourne flight, made to wait for hours for a Perth flight. Tough, like if your holidays or business were ruined.

Travelers around the world go to specific places for their attractions / landmarks.
What would be Paris without the Eiffel Tower? Sydney without the bridge, the opera house? London without Big Ben?
What will be left of Alice in years to come? Nothing – it will be just a town in Australia.

Ms Moss is not an artist and has no idea of what makes Alice Springs a town like Alice.


Anzac Oval will be site for gallery: Gunner
Mister Gunner is playing with words, splitting hair.
Normally a precinct is a building and its boundary like a school precinct: building and playground. Vehicles cannot enter a precinct (except service vehicles).
An oval is a play/sport ground. Part of our oval will become included in the precinct and the rest will be car parks joined to the gallery precinct.
It will not be big enough for a large tourist bus, caravans and the local wishing to park near the CBD.
