Martu Art From The Far Western Desert

– When

23 September-30 November 2014

– Admission

Martu Art From The Far Western Desert has now finished.

‘People don’t like painting alone’ – Ngalangka Nola Taylor, Martu artist

Martu Art from the Far Western Desert brings together a selection of collaborative paintings by 29 Martu artists of their Ngurra (Country), a vast area of the Great Sandy, Little Sandy and Gibson Deserts in Western Australia. Depicting in intricate detail the desert landscape and its stories, the artworks illustrate the Martu people’s intimate knowledge of the region.

The vibrant paintings are the result of highly social and collaborative processes that involve older and younger artists coming together to paint and talk, tell stories and sing, remember and educate, ensuring that Martu history, culture and knowledge is passed on to future generations.
