Notes

Chips Mackinolty was an early member of the Earthworks Poster Collective established in 1972 which worked out of the Tin Sheds Art Workshop at Sydney University. With a variety of other members holding strong political views he created posters related to university politics and wider political, social and economic issues. The climate of the seventies, political activism and debate and opposition to established authority and government structures, was mirrored in the work of Chips and his colleagues. When the collective disbanded in 1979 Chips went to Townsville as a Community Arts Officer, and in mid-81 went to Katherine and Uluru in the Northern Territory as a Crafts Advisor to an Aboriginal Arts and Crafts organisation. In late 1985 he moved to Darwin and worked for the Northern Territory Land Council. In 1990 Chips set up a graphic arts and research centre (Green Ant Publishing) with friends producing posters, T-shirts and books.
