The Australian Heritage Commission's Indigenous Heritage Art Award, now entering its fifth exhibition in seven years, brings together Indigenous visual expressions of attachment to particular places and country. Entries to the award not only celebrate Indigenous attachments to place, they sometimes provide a commentary on the way in which places have changed.
