Warakurna: All the Stories Got into our Minds and Eyes was an exhibition of contemporary paintings and sculptures that documented 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.
