Tjintu Ngalya-pakani Tjintu Matjarpanyi - From sunrise to sunset
Judy Martin and Tuppy Ngintja Goodwin are two senior artists and leaders of Mimili Maku Arts. Though they paint next to each other every day, their works explore very different parts of the expanse of land that makes up the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY) Lands. Both artists have a distinct visual language that embodies the country and Tjukurpa they know and paint. To the right eyes these works are much more than paintings, they are maps of country and documents of great knowledge. Tjintu Ngalya-pakani Tjintu Matjarpanyi brings two distant places together, demonstrating the interconnected nature of Tjukurpa and the all-encompassing and powerful connection to country held by Anangu across the APY Lands.

A new series of photographs and sculptures from Robert Fielding, presented by Blackartprojects at Sydney Contemporary 2019.
"The objects in these photographs are echoes of the past. With them come the memories of past afflictions upon our land and culture: the memories of rations, missions, mining, and farming. Like manta (earth) continually reclaiming the physical remnants of the past through rust and erosion, Anangu culture continually reclaims its place as part of our landscape. By reshaping echoes of the past into songs of our future, we create new memories, new ways of keeping culture strong." - Robert Fielding
