Indigenous Australian visual art is an outstanding case of the dynamics of globalisation and its intersection with the hyper-local wellsprings of cultural expression, and of the strengths and weaknesses of state, philanthropic and commercial backing for cultural production and dissemination. The chapter traces the development of the international profile of Indigenous 'dot' art – a traditional symbolic art form from the Western Desert – as 'high-end' visual art, and its positioning within elite markets and finance supported by key international brokers, collectors and philanthropists.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
