Kungka Kuṉpu (Strong Women) – Opening Celebration, Auslan interpreted
March 3 | 5:30 pm — 7:30 pm AEDT
Join the celebrations as we launch the exhibition Kungka Kuṉpu (Strong Women) with special guests senior Anangu artists along with Dr Lisa Slade, Assistant Director Artistic Programs Art Gallery of South Australia and Nici Cumpston Artistic Director of Tarnanthi and Curator of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art, Art Gallery of South Australia.
Drawn from the collection of the Art Gallery of South Australia, Kungka Kuṉpu (Strong Women) showcases major contemporary works by celebrated women artists from the Aṉangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara Lands – cultural custodians of an oral tradition that epitomises the art of storytelling. Working individually and collaboratively, these women leaders share an irrepressible desire to create ground-breaking works, deeply embedded with cultural knowledge and rich in ceremonial song and performance. Presented as part of AGSA’s acclaimed Tarnanthi program, this exhibition reflects the adaptive genius, energy and dynamism of Aṉangu culture and the inspiring tale of women supporting each other across generations.
Kungka Kuṉpu (Strong Women) is on display 4 March – 21 May at Maitland Regional Art Gallery.
