GOOLOGOOLUP NAIDOC SCREENINGS | Artitja | Across the Water

“Across the Water” unites the vibrant and culturally rich artworks of Tiwi Islands artists from Munupi Arts with those from remote community Aboriginal art centres in the East Kimberley, including Kira Kiro Artists at Kalumburu, Waringarri Arts in Kununurra and Marrawuddi Artists in Kakadu.

This exhibition features a diverse collection of paintings and sculptures, celebrating the interconnectedness and unique artistic expressions of four distinct First Nations communities.
 
“Across the Water” was first exhibited at the Early Works Gallery from June 8 to June 30 and is now presented through digital screenings daily on the City of Perth Urban Screens as part of the Goologoolup NAIDOC Screenings.
 
This Goologoolup screening is made possible with the kind assistance of Artitja Fine Art Gallery. Based in South Fremantle, Western Australia, Artitja Fine Art Gallery specialises in Australian Aboriginal Art. Celebrating its twentieth year in 2024, Artitja has developed ongoing, trusting relationships with over twenty Aboriginal-owned art centres in remote communities. The gallery continues to bring exciting Indigenous art directly from these communities.
 
“Across the Water” exhibits daily from July 7 to 25 on the City of Perth’s Northbridge Piazza Superscreen and Forrest Place’s Arts Screen as part of the Goologoolup NAIDOC Screenings. See the festival guide for screening times. (https://screenarts.com.au/goologoolup-24/)
