2012 Painting the Land: new works by senior Ninuku artists

25 August - 15 September 2012

Aboriginal & Pacific Art, in conjunction with Ninuku Arts, SA, is pleased to present Painting the Land: new works by senior Ninuku artists.

Ninuku Arts is a wholly-Indigenous owned and governed Art Centre which supports artists from two communities - Pipalyatjara and Kalka. Both communities are peaceful places, located in the far north-western corner of South Australia, near the tri-state border of South Australia, Western Australia and Northern Territory. The two communities, fourteen kilometres apart, are surrounded by the rolling, rocky hills of the Tomkinson Ranges and are part of the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY).

The community is encouraged by strong governance, cultural engagement and pride among local Anangu people. The art centre prides itself on its inclusivity (providing opportunities for all generations) and embracing individuality in artists.
