Appropriation of imagery, bicultural education and the delicate balance between serving the market for overseas students and the needs of local and indigenous students were among the issues discussed.

Grishin looks at the earliest teachings of Australian art history in Australian universities, commencing in the year 1946 with gradually diminishing staff and resources in more recent years. This text further examines some of the pressures against and valued roles of Australian art history in education institutions. Key figures referred to are Sidney Dickinson, Bernard Smith, James Mollison, Wally Caruana, Robyn Maxwell, Bea Maddock and William Morris.
This text looks at two key paintings by Melbourne magic realist artist Julia Ciccarone, which come from a 1996 show at the Robert Lindsay Gallery called Fictitious Voyages. These works are illustrations of the text A New Discovery of Terra Australis, or, The Great Southern Land, originally published in 1676 by one Gabriel de Foigny. These images are deconstructed in relation to past and present histories and what Butler believes are two major attitudes concerning the way things are seen and valued. Other artists here referred to include Gordon Bennett, Colin McCahon, Mondrian, Michael Stevenson, Scott Redford and Mikala Dwyer.
McLean examines the current state of art in Australia as both a positive force and one essentially unAustralian. As he states There may be plenty of interesting artists from Australia but few aspire to make Australian art. McLean looks at the work of artists Tracey Moffatt, Gordon Bennett, John Citizen, Henri Matisse, John Peter Russell, Tony Nathan and John Mawurndjul in an attempt to address some of the issues surrounding the case for unAustralian art.
