GOOLOGOOLUP NAIDOC SCREENINGS | Ninuku Arts

Ninuku Arts was founded in 2006 by a small group of Pitjantjatjara and Ngaanyatjarra artists in a small mud-brick building in Kalka Community, located in the far northwest corner of South Australia. Currently, the art centre supports a rotating roster of close to forty artists and makers living in both Kalka and Pipalyatjara, which are the most remote communities of the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY) Lands.

Artists come to work on a near daily basis and the studio is the social and cultural beating heart of both communities. It is a place not only to sit and work alongside family, but to gossip and share stories of near and distant past.
 
Over the course of the last decade the art centre has exhibited work nationally and internationally, becoming known for its powerful colour palettes as well as the diversity of styles, techniques, and mediums of each artist. Whilst the origins of Ninuku’s creative output lay in the traditions of Western Desert dot painting, artists have grown over time to incorporate loose brush techniques as well as tjanpi (grass) and punu (wood) sculpture into their practices.
 
Works from Ninuku Arts 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/)
