Warakurna opening soon in Canberra
7 December 2012 to 3 November 2013. Free. First Australians Focus Gallery.
Warakurna: All the Stories Got into our Minds and Eyes is an exhibition of contemporary paintings and sculptures that document a new art movement emerging from the Western Desert community of Warakurna.
These paintings combine familiar Western Desert symbols and dots with a new, more figurative style, to recreate scenes of everyday life and to tell historical and contemporary stories.
The works are the creative vision of a group of artists including Eunice Yunurupa Porter, Judith Yinyika Chambers, Dianne Ungukalpi Golding, Jean Inyalanka Burke and Dorcas Tinamayi Bennett.
The Warakurna paintings are not just art, they are recount incidents and remember people that have impacted on the artists' lives.
