Ace Bourke is an independent curator and art historian specialising in colonial, Indigenous and Australian art and their points of intersection and influences.
Andrew Blake was manager of Marrawuddi Gallery for several years where he initiated a powerful group of national exhibitions to introduce the work of this small group of senior rock artists to wider audiences. He has returned to Buku-Larrngay Mulka Art Centre at Yirkalla, where he initiated the major nationally touring exhibition Saltwater: Yirkalla Bark Paintings of Sea Country (1999) now in the collection of the National Maritime Museum. His book about the contemporary Stone Country artists, entitled A Fine Tradition, will be published in 2007.
