Abstract

It is a dark and stormy day in Sydney ... so my plane is grounded for over an hour in Melbourne. I am going to be late for my meeting at the Australian Museum! Finally I emerge from Museum Station and dash across Hyde Park under leaden skies. Waiting impatiently to cross College Street I see that there are huge spiders on the outer walls of the Museum across the road. I find them moving across an enormous screen as I enter the foyer. Itís all part of the new Spiders Alive & Deadly exhibition. The massive beasts add to the ominous morning. So it is a relief to receive such a friendly welcome from Sydney-based Aboriginal artist Jonathan Jones and Australian Museum Collections Officer, Rebecca Fisher, who have agreed to assist me with my research.
