Abstract Representations of Northern Territory history at the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory (MAGNT) during the late 1990s reflected the difficulty of establishing relationships between Australian museums and the communities and governments they served. MAGNT exhibits emphasized images promoted in the Northern Territorys official history. In particular, they focused on closed links between the Northern Territory and Asia, the romance of frontier lifestyles and industries, colourful and prominent individuals and the ultimately successful battles to overcome hardship and adversity.
