Pujiman

ABOUT THE EXHIBITION


Pujiman is a major collaboration between Spinifex Hill Artists and Martumili Artists. The art centres, both located in the Pilbara region of Western Australia, have united to bring the last pujiman (desert born) generation together with their younger artists. Featuring animation, film and drawing, as well as the painting practice that has been the foundation of both art centres, Pujiman showcases the powerful contemporary Indigenous arts practice of the Pilbara.

"Anybody can come and paint in Martumili, this is for all of us, anybody can paint. Young artists will learn how it was in the pujiman days when they paint. They will learn about the country. We must learn, you know, from the old people, so we can hold onto our stories. Here they are teaching us young ones."
- Emerging Martu artist Cyril Whyoulter
