Telstra New Media Award Raymond Zada (South Australia) for his work Sorry which examines the complexities of Australian history and disconnect between language and reality. Telstra Chief Financial Officer Andrew Penn reinforced the important contribution these artists make in promoting an understanding and appreciation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures. We are proud to have met and profiled so many uniquely talented artists through our 22 years of support for this Award and are committed to ensuring these incredible stories and artworks are seen and heard on a national scale, said Mr Penn. As part of this years 30th anniversary celebrations, 50 artworks from the Telstra Collection, including works from this years winners, will be made accessible to new audiences through an exciting collaboration with the Google Art Project, continued Mr Penn. Since launching in February 2011, the Google Art Project (www.googleartproject.com) has given people around the world access to more than 40,000 works selected from collections held in 261 museums worldwide including Tate Britain, Museum of Modern Art, The Van Gogh Museum, The National Gallery in London, the National Gallery of Australia and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney. Annie Baxter, Head of Communications for Google Australia said the collaboration will allow audiences to experience the extraordinary talent of the very best Indigenous artists in the country. "We are delighted to be helping share more Australian art with people around the world via the Google Art Project, and we hope it encourages a greater appreciation and interest in the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures on a global scale, said Ms Baxter. The 2013 NATSIAA exhibition will displayed at the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory from Saturday 10th August until Sunday 10th November, and artworks from the Telstra Collection will be added to the Google Art Project in the coming months.
