Overview

Japingka Gallery presents Spinifex Artists from the remote Pitjantjatjara lands in WA. Artists Ngalpingka Simms, Kanta Donnegan and Tjaruwa Woods will attend the opening on Friday 10 November.  

Twenty years ago the Spinifex People of the Great Victoria Desert began an epic journey of recovery and restoration. Moved off their ancestral lands by missile and nuclear tests of the 1950s, they had determined to relocate to the homelands.

They moved back in the 1980s. Then in 1987 Spinifex Arts Project was established to map the connections between the people and their lands. Their Native Title claim was successful and Spinifex lands became the first Native Title granted in WA. The original painted maps linking the lands and birthplaces of the people were gifted to the WA Museum.

Spinifex arts is continuing to play a major role in the community, to engender and celebrate the cultural heritage of the community, and to recognise mythological sites on their Country.
