Summary
Poster promoting and calling for registrations for an international symposium at the National Museum of Australia in November 2009. The American-Australian Scientific Expedition to Arnhem Land in 1948 was a formative research venture which involved a co-ordinated study of both the natural environment of Arnhem Land and its Aboriginal inhabitants. Poster depicts a montage image composed of two photographs : Charles P. Mountford with the Groote Eyland artists (1948) ; & the 1948 American-Australian Scientific Expedition to Arnhem Land posed at Gunbalanya (Oenpelli). The poster is largely in sepia tones with black, red and blue text
