Tarnanthi 2021: Ernabella Arts + Praxis Artspace brings you

Iriti-nguru nintini kuwari-kutu 

Showing the past in the present (translation by Linda Rive)

7 - 29 Oct 2021

OPENING | Oct 7, 6-8pm

 

Ernabella Arts, on the Aṉangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara Lands of South Australia, is Australia’s oldest, continuously running First Nations art centre. A key element of this longevity is the passing down of cultural knowledge from older artists and family members to the younger generations.

For Tarnanthi 2021, early-career, emerging and established artists present paintings and works in diverse media that highlight connections and knowledge-sharing between old and young.

The participants include senior artist Carlene Thompson and emerging artist Janice Stanley, a third-generation Ernabella artist, who exemplify how older knowledge-holders have helped younger generations to develop their understanding, expertise and practices. This is to be applauded.

We are excited to curate this rich body of work from Pukatja (Ernabella).
