NGANAMPA KILPILIL: OUR STARS, Hazelhurst Regional Gallery, Sydney 2016
Nganampa Kililpil: Our Stars is the first major survey exhibition from the artists of the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunyjatjara (APY) Lands of central Australia - a partnership project between Hazelhurst Regional Gallery & APY Lands artists and art centres.
Bringing together more than 100 artists from across the Lands, the exhibition was an important opportunity for the region to speak as a whole and to share unique cultural and artistic traditions. The richly coloured, dynamic and powerful works articulated the central themes ofTjukurpa (Law), Ngura (Country), and Inma (ceremony), telling of Anangu creation stories, the landscape and its important sites.
