Ms McWilliam gives a short summation of the current offerings at Australian universities, and points out 'that not one of them had a mandatory undergraduate course in Australian art history'. She concludes:
It is possible to complete a graduate and even postgraduate degree in fine art, visual art, arts administration or art theory at an Australian university without acquiring even the most basic knowledge about Australian art or art history. [emphasis added] This dishonours the profound wealth of Australian art and the indigenous history and social comment that inspired it.
Jeez, I'll say!
