Summary
  • Annotation pending
  • In 2003 Tiger Palpatja, Hector Burton, Barney Wangin, Mick Wikilyiri, Ray Ken and Paddy Kunmanara started painting Pitjantjatjara Tjukurpa onto canvas at Tjala Arts, the art centre at Amata in the An̲angu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY) Lands. Prior to 2003, the predominately female artists in the APY Lands had produced works of a secular nature rather than paintings that tell significant Tjukurpa from the region. This dissertation looks at why the art of these men is historically important and to what extent the art centre has been pivotal in the process of bringing their work into the public arena
