Boomalli Aboriginal Artists Co-operative was formed in 1987 by a group of ten artists based in Sydney. The meaning of Boomalli is to strike, to make a mark, and it is a language word from at least three nations - Bundjalung, Gamileroi and Wiradjuri - from the region known as New South Wales. Boomalli's meaning was considered very appropriate as the original artists wished to make their mark through exhibiting their art on their terms. The artists refused to be confined by the then existing preconceptions and incorrect notions held by the majority of non-Aboriginal people, of what constituted 'truly Aboriginal', or 'authentic', art and culture. Many of the original members had exhibited together and/or met through art school.
