Warlpiri Women's Paintings Lajamanu

Posted by Aboriginal Art Directory | 08.09.00

Gallery: Cooee Art Gallery

In 1986 a small group of women produced the first paintings for Warnayaka Art Centre, Lajamanu NT. These paintings have become important documents of Warlpiri culture held in the National Gallery of Victoria, collected at the instigation of the curator Judith Ryan.

This important exhibition of contemporary desert paintings from Lajamanu provides an opportunity for visitors to expand their perception of contemporary Aboriginal Art beyond the extraordinary vision provided by the "Papunya Tula-Genesis and Genius" exhibition held by the Art Gallery of New South Wales.

This Lajamanu exhibition also provides an interesting adjunct to the contemporary Pintupi women's paintings from Kintore on exhibit at the AGNSW.
