Your Presenter

Laure Niveau

Based in Paris where I was born and grew up, I opened my first gallery specialised in Indigenous Australian art and culture, L’Espace Ab’Origine, in 2004, during a time Indigenous Australian art was slowly emerging in France, making it a very exciting time to show and teach about the amazing Indigenous Australian art as most of the public had never heard about it.

Between 2004 and 2007 I had the privilege to work with leading Indigenous Australian artists such as Gracie Morton Pwerle, Ada Bird Petyarre and even had the honour to present some paintings of the great Wenten Rubuntja.

I work in an unconditional respectful and open collaboration with every communities and Indigenous art centres I represent. Every artworks I present have been meticulously selected and are all authentic and certified.

I am a proud member of the Indigenous Art Code which helps protect Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists by getting sellers of their art to commit to treating artists fairly, honestly and respectfully.

The Code ensures a fair and ethical trade for the artists as well as transparency.
