This October marks the 35th anniversary of the last group of Aboriginal people to come out of the deserts of Central Australia and make contact with non Aboriginal Australia. The group, becoming known as the Pintubi Nine, were the last group of Aboriginal Australians living a completely traditional existence.

The exhibition ‘Tjapaltjarri Marnkurrpa’ showcases the works of three of the men from the Pintubi Nine - Warlimpirrnga Tjapaltjarri, Walala Tjapaltjarri and Thomas Tjapaltjarri.

On Saturday October 13th 1984 a small family group who had been living a semi nomadic hunter gather life, completely oblivious of the western world, came upon others of their language group who had travelled from the Aboriginal community of Kiwirrkurra. They were the last of a culture living as their ancestors had for millennia.

In the years since that day most of the group have received high recognition as artists. Painting traditional stories and depictions of country they have established themselves as some of Australia’s leading Aboriginal artists.
