    Family Connections artist talk with Marina Strocchi

    Family Connections July 16, 2020 The Residency Followers of the Papunya Tula Artists Company would be acutely aware of the high percentage of female artists in the ranks. This was not always the case. PTA started as a men's company, though included around half a dozen women artists over the years until April 1996, when the company took a radical turn and invited a host of Kintore and Kiwirrkurra women to paint for the company full time. Preceding this eventful month in the company's history, a fledging art centre at Haasts Bluff and me, its manager, fulfilled a "deal" brokered by the Kintore women. "We danced for you...we want big canvas". This presentation unfolds the brokering done by a group of women who I referred to as "the dancing women". In 1992, the newly established Ikuntji Women's Centre (later known as the Ikuntji Art Centre) was known as a place to paint in the desert. Through family connections, the word spread to Kintore. I visited Kintore in 1992 and saw a series of remarkable murals which sparked my curiosity about these women who wanted to paint. In this presentation, Family Connections, film footage spanning 1993 to 1995 tells the story of an open ceremony at Haasts Bluff, two painting camps, and a celebration at the exhibition of nearly fifty works done by an extraordinary group of women, assisted by their relatives from Haasts Bluff. It is a moment in time captured before these women went on to paint full time and enjoy international recognition in the art world so far away from their lives. This presentation was developed through the support of the 2019 Arts NT Fellowship. This event is presented by Heritage Alice Springs and proudly sponsored by Northern Territory Government and supported by 8CCC Community Radio. Places are limited, no bookings are available. Please arrive early to secure your place.

    Alice Springs Beanie Festival 2020_CANCELLED

    Jun. 27th - Jul. 20th 2020

    Stitching the Seasons Across our vast continent, seasons vary dramatically and are in a new state of change. Some of us see the four seasons: summer, autumn, winter and spring. In the tropics, as many as six seasons are recognised. Here in Central Australia, the Arrernte people have two seasons, Uterna (summer) and Athwerrpe (winter). The 24th Alice Springs Beanie Festival will see hundreds of beanies made in response to these experiences of seasons across Australia and beyond, with 2020’s theme Stitching the Seasons. Endless summer days, cicadas and the smell of rain, autumn leaf and colour, the freeze and fires of long winter nights, the renewal and beginnings of spring and the strength and rage of extreme weather, all wondrously expressed in unimaginable, phantasmagorical woollen ways! Opening night celebrations include live music, parade, performance and food as thousands descend on the Araluen Cultural Precinct. At ‘Beanie Central’, thousands more beanies are yours to try and buy, creative workshops are offered as you become part of the incredible Alice Springs Beanie Festival community.

    A River And A Voice Shouting Above it by Gabriel Curtin

    Jul. 10th - Jul. 25th 2020

    A River And A Voice Shouting Above it by Gabriel Curtin OPENING 6pm, Friday 10 July EXHIBITION 8—25 July There was this cartoon, all these animals huddled on an island beach trying to make a plan. A tsunami surged towards them and the scene kept cutting between the curling water and the panicked wildlife. Then it cut to the tsunami’s crest and perched atop it as though it were a branch were two vultures. And the vultures talked about all kinds of things, unaware of what they were sitting on. I can’t remember what happened next. I think the animals on the beach got out ok and the vultures flapped off, looking for something different. ________________________________________________________________ ***DISCLAIMER***We have implemented a COVID-19 Management Plan as approved by NT Health and will be following all health and hygiene measures to ensure this event is safely attended.
