Australian Art and Culture
A Creative Hub!
While Australia maybe best known for its sporting achievements, it is also a cultural and artistic haven. Australia has been shaped by the traditions of both its ancient indigenous people and its diverse migrant population.
Australia's unique history and environment pose imaginative challenges to artists, musicians, writers and film-makers alike.
Over the past 30 years, Aboriginal artists have brought their art and culture to the international arena, transferring their traditional designs from sand paintings to boards and canvases, creating a powerful connection between indigenous people and other Australians. Every city in Australia boasts a major art gallery, displaying the visual arts of Europe and Asia, alongside the art of its Aboriginal people.
As well as innovative opera and musical theatre, we have seen the emergence of an original style of contemporary rock music. This is actively promoted by alternative radio stations and live music venues across Australia. Success stories such as INXS, Midnight Oil and Silverchair are paving the way for new artists like Ben Lee, The Vines, and Kasey Chambers.
In film, Australia has a reputation for innovation and quality, and for producing films like The Castle, Muriel's Wedding and Moulin Rouge which have a unique Australian flavour, yet international appeal. Director Baz Luhrmann and a host of successful Australian actors, including Nicole Kidman, Geoffrey Rush and Cate Blanchett certainly have made Hollywood stand up and take notice!
Throughout the country, there are numerous arts festivals and events such as the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, The Sydney Mardi Gras and The Big Day Out which cater to all ages and tastes and help to celebrate the diversity of modern, multicultural Australia.
