Past Exhibition: Papunya Tjupi Arts 2017

Emily Andy Napaltjarri

We are very proud to once again present works by the immensely talented artists of Papunya Tjupi Arts. Showing at Incinerator Art Space, Sydney, this exhibition follows last years highly acclaimed, sell-out show.

Collectable senior artists will once again grace the walls, and we are excited to introduce many rising stars.

Papunya Tjupi Arts is a remarkable art centre based in the community of ‘Papunya’, the birthplace of the Western Desert dot painting movement.

Papunya Tjupi Arts is a 100% Aboriginal owned and directed community. It supports a new generation of artists establishing their own unique identity based on the legacy of their forefathers.

The exhibition opens on the 8th of February.
