In order to appreciate the transformation and evolution of Aboriginal communities, the Musée des Confluences, heir to the collections of the Muséum, has supplemented its acquisitions with a range of contemporary Aboriginal works that reflect current art in Australia.

This book presents the works accompanied by texts by experts who provide a multidisciplinary perspective (social, political, historical, geographical, economic and aesthetic), enabling readers to gain a better understanding of this non-European society and discover all its richness. Among the works featured in the book is "Salt on Mina Mina", an exceptional painting on canvas by Dorothy Napangardi. This is the Musée des Confluences' most recent acquisition, made with the help of Métropole Gestion, an independent portfolio management company.
