Anangu Women Artists - Strength in Beauty
30 July - 26 September 2021
Anangu Women Artists of the APY Lands are recognised for their boldly coloured paintings telling the Tjukurrpa creation stories of their homelands. The narratives in the exhibition ‘Strength in Beauty’ centre on Women Creation Ancestors who travelled the country, laying down important ceremonial sites and customary law. The women continue to follow the edicts of law and ceremony from the Tjukurrpa, and this forms the main content of their paintings. Each artist stays within the traditional observations of their own family group in telling these age old stories.
Exhibiting artists include Alison Munti Riley, Teresa Baker, Clarise Tunkin, Maureen Baker, Elaine Woods, Carolanne Ken, Janice Woods, Imitjala Curley, Julie Woods, Madeline Curley, Venita Woods, Pollyanne Smith and Mantuna George.
