Tjukurrtjanu: Origins of Western Desert Art145 views
Tjukurrtjanu: Origins of Western Desert Art examines a watershed moment in the history of art when a painting practice emerged at Papunya in Central Australia.
Tjukurrtjanu gives prominence to 200 of the first paintings produced at Papunya between 1971 and 1972 and also establishes the vital connection between the works of art and their sources in ephemeral designs made for use in ceremony. A collaboration between the NGV and Museum Victoria. In partnership with Papunya Tula Artists Pty Ltd.
