We have arrived at a point where we are constantly experimenting with and experiencing a new understanding of diversity in Australia. Art discovers new directions through the development of strategies that enable it to penetrate and interpret the unknown other in a more profound way. This sets up the topical discussion for this article with references to exhibitions Boghcheh (Bundle), Defiling the Object, Embellishing the Family Photograph and The City which showed at the Gabriel Gallery in 2000. Featured artists include Karen Lunn, Mehmet Adil, Peter Bok, Alan Cruickshank, Helen Fuller, Catherine K, Pramod Kumar, Michelle Nikou, Deborah Paauwe, Bronwyn Platten, Hossein Valamanesh, Zita Weelius, Mei Wong, Anthony Figallo, Fassih Keiso, Samia Mikhail, Yatzek Szmuc and John Tsiavis.

This article celebrates the diversity of some of the groupings which link artists within the city that is Artlinks birthplace, Adelaide. Gray Street Workshop, Central Studios, Experimental Art Foundation (EAF), Australian Network for Art and Technology (ANAT), Jam Factory Contemporary Craft and Design, Jamboree Ceramic Workshop, SAAW (South Australian Artists Workshop), Red Door Facing East, Butchers Studio, Blythe Street Studios, Rice Art, Zu Design, SEAS Studios and the Electronic Writing Research Ensemble are all examined.
The issues raised by revisiting in some degree the past within Artlink touch upon a more general invocation to the authority and precedent of history in an Australian context. Some of these issues are here discussed with reference to key figures such as the Papunya Tula movement, David Kerr, Jude Adams, Drusilla Modjeska, Joan Kerr, Anne McClintock, Louise Dauth, Penny White, Zara Stanhope, Stuart Hall, Nicholas Rothwell, Paul Carter and Donald Brook.
Art from an indigenous context cannot be transferred wholly into another context for reading. This denies the fact that indigenous contexts do have ways of seeing and making sense of their art. Mel presents a discourse for alternate ways of viewing such indigenous art with reference to terms such as postmodern, objectivity and subjectivity. The Mogei people of Mt Hagen area in Papua New Guinea are examined through this text.

This article seeks to challenge regional communities away from the self-prophesying defeatism of whingers from the bush towards a concept of growing communities. The arts have an intrinsic contribution to make within the chosen future. Fettling discusses this with reference to globalisation, de-centred cultural and ethnic hybridization and individuality. Featured artists include Megan Jones, Andrew McDonald, Janet Gallagher, Vicki Reynolds, Danielle Hobbs, Chris Booth, Craig Christie, Rodney Spooner, Michael Doneman, Motoyuki Niwa and Lee Salomone.

Information processing technology influences our notions about creativity, perception, and the limits of art & It & is probably not the province of computers and other telecommunication devices to produce works of art as we know it; but they will, in fact be instrumental in redefining the entire area of esthetic awareness.
