Punuku Tjukurpa
24 March – 21 May, Gallery One, Artspace Mackay

Artback NT, in association with Maruku Arts, presents Punuku Tjukurpa, the first touring exhibition of artworks from the Maruku Arts archive based at Mutitjulu, near Uluru in the Northern Territory. Punuku Tjukurpa includes 88 punu objects, alongside sculptural works, 2D objects and specially produced audio and video footage. The exhibition includes works made by three generations of artists for whom the tradition of wood carving and painting has been passed down. Artists have shared the teaching of stories that inform the intricate designs and markings incorporated in the objects. The title of the exhibition, Punuku Tjukurpa, describes the story and the Law behind these works.
