This year’s show, Tjukurrpa Ngaatjanya Maru Kamu Tjulkura (Dreaming in Black and White), brings together the finest collection of works executed in the very traditional palette of black and white. These works are from some of the company’s most senior community members as well as some of the most important emerging artists. This exhibition boldly honours the traditions of the company’s founding artists and shareholders of the early 1970’s but simultaneously embraces todays modern contemporary art world.
Senior artists such as Patrick Tjungurrayi, Yinarupa Nangala, Ningura Napurrula, Yukultji Napangati and Warlimpirrnga Tjapaltjarri epitomize the integrity and success of Papunya Tula Artists, and it is befitting in the company’s 40th year that their spellbinding works are accompanied by the future of the company, emerging artists such as Cedric Bennett Tjungurrayi, Mantua Nangala, Michael Reid Tjapanangka to name but a few.
This exhibition opens on Wednesday 17th October and runs until Saturday 1st December 2012 and it is a must see for anyone interested in following the development of Papunya Tula Artists, one of the Aboriginal art movements most celebrated art centers, now in its 40th year.
