Le Point de Papunya. Créations autour de l'art aborigène

Abstract : 'Beyond the Papunya Dot' invites eight Australian artists and an art collective to present their vision of the Aboriginal art world through the exhibition of new works. It will open at the same time as the exhibition 'Tjukurrtjanu: Origins of Western Desert Art' taking place in the Musée du Quai Branly in Paris in October. 'Beyond the Papunya Dot' is an echo to this superb project. Designed by the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne, 'Tjukurrtjanu' celebrates the 40th anniversary of Papunya Tula in 1971-72 by the founding artists of the Western Desert art movement. The exhibition 'Beyond the Papunya Dot' aims to give a voice to very different artists working with a large variety of media and shows other aspects of the Australian art world than the well-known dot paintings.
