GOOLOGOOLUP NAIDOC SCREENINGS: Indigenous Art on Screen
A month-long program of Indigenous Art on the Northbridge Piazza and Forrest Place Superscreens in celebration of NAIDOC Week.
This incredible screen schedule of Indigenous art and culture features animation, sculpture and painting from across Australia.
Featuring digital exhibitions:
TJANPI DESERT WEAVERS & NGAYUKU PAPA ANIMATIONS
The exhibition showcases the wonderful works of the talented weavers from 26 remote communities on the NPY lands. As well as photographs of the artists at work in the spectacular landscapes of the region, the exhibition will feature Ngayuku Papa: Bluey and Big Boy and Ngayuku Papa: Tiny, two short videos which bring the weavings to life through stop-motion and storytelling.
ARTITJA : LINES IN PARALLEL
Lines in Parallel brings together over 40 artworks by artists from two important art centres in the Northern Territory, highlighting the concurrent spiritual, ritual and historic narratives unique to these remote regions. Artworks from Bula'bula Art Centre in Ramingining, central Arnhem Land, 4,400 kms away, will be on display alongside paintings by significant Tiwi Island artists, from the Munupi Art Centre on Melville Island.
Ikuntji Artists was the first art centre established by women in the Western Desert Art Movement. Today Ikuntji Artists are represented in many national and international galleries and institutions. Their art is famous for bold colour choice, decisive brush strokes and a long legacy of internationally renowned artists.
Over the course of the last fifteen years, Pitjantjatjara and Ngaanyatjarra artists working at Ninuku Studio have exhibited painting across the world, becoming known for their powerful colour palettes as well as a broad diversity of styles and mediums in which they tell traditional stories of country and everyday life in community.
TJARLIRLI & KALTUKATJARA
Tjarlirli Art Centre represents the artists of Tjukurla in the Ngannyatjarra lands of Western Australia as well as Kaltukatjara Art Centre in Docker River, Northern Territory.
Martumili Artists was established by Martu people living in the communities of Parnpajinya (Newman), Jigalong, Parnngurr, Punmu, Kunawarritji, Irrungadji and Warralong, and it draws on strong influences of aboriginal art history.
CAN: PLACE NAMES LANGUAGE EXHIBITION
This colourful exhibition features iconography and language important to Walyalup and surrounds created during Place Names Walyalup project, by Community Arts Netwrok.
Through the decoding and sharing process, Noongar community created 35 artworks featuring iconography important to the Walyalup area.
CAN has worked to honour the work of the community by creating posters that share their artwork and act as a fantastic educational resource that can be used to promote Noongar culture, heritage and creativity.
From these posters we have developed a screen exhibition which will help celebrate Noongar Language during NAIDOC week.
Screenarts acknowledges the Whadjuk people of the Noongar nation as the traditional custodians of this country and its waters and that we operate on Noongar country. We pay our respects to Noongar elders past, present, and emerging. Always was and always will be Aboriginal land.
