The Aralya Project

  • Dates: 14 Oct – 08 Nov, 2019
Artists Reception: Wednesday 16 October 5pm

An exhibition of intergenerational collaborative works by Ninuku Indigenous Arts at Aralya painting camp between 2018-2019.

Through diverse art forms, Aṉangu artists tell the Tjukurpa stories (ancestral creation stories) connected to the Kutjanu area of the Aṉangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara Lands. Their large-scale collaborative paintings, dramatic works on paper and tjanpi (grass) sculptures were created on country at an ‘outdoor studio’ during a week-long trip to important Tjukurpa sites.

The intergenerational project through Ninuku Arts was also a major opportunity to extend younger people’s cultural learning and responsibilities. The exhibition includes a documentary video shot during the excursion.
