The Dictionary of Australian Artists Online is an open access and dynamic scholarly reference work.

You can search 6858 biographies by over 400 biographers, and watch for 481 new biographies currently in progress. You can discover themes and patterns from 45 years of art scholarship. You can create new biographies, comment or revise those previous, and write alternative interpretations on artists already covered.

The foundation data focuses predominantly on Colonial artists; women artists to 1950; black and white artists; Aboriginal artists of the Western Desert and the Sydney region. It is constantly being added to: this is only the beginning.

The DAAO invites art lovers and art researchers to search, discover and create Australian art history.

Dynamic and scholarly, the Dictionary of Australian Artists Online (DAAO) provides biographical data, contextual information, commentary and images. Providing authoritative, contemporary information the Dictionary of Australian Artists Online facilitates, promotes and encourages scholarship on Australian artists.

With commentary, a publishing system and links to the databases of Australia's major cultural institutions, the Dictionary of Australian Artists Online will deliver rich search functions and fresh scholarship. Relatively unexplored areas such as relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous art will be enabled through the Dictionary of Australian Artists Online.

A framework of open access intellectual property rights is an underlying principle of the DAAO

With over 7,000 biographies of Australian artists already, the DAAO will grow with public and academic support. You may not find people like eX de Medici or Mandy Martin right away, but you will find people like George Raper or Emily Kngwarreye.
