polytekton was hired by the Valparaiso University Brauer Museum of Art to design the exhibition catalogue for David Robert Austen. The resulting book, Being Australian Under A Southern Sun: All I Really Know Is What I See was published by the Brauer Museum of Art at Valparaiso University on September 17. 2018. The exhibition at the university museum will be on display until 9 December 2018. The book is available at the museum and on Amazon.
Born and bred in Australia, I have never seen such a truly human view of my countrymen. Here is a wonderful Australia unknown to the cities-only jet setters… Austen is an artist who has captured the real Australia. Do not miss this book.
Ross Terrill, author of The Australians, Mao,
The New Chinese Empire, and other books on China.
