pujiman

Pujiman is a major collaboration between the 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.

Made possible with the support of our Principal Partner BHP Billiton. This exhibition will open at the Port Hedland Courthouse Gallery on Friday 16 February, 6pm. We invite all Spinifex Hill Studio friends and customers to join us on this evening. Help us celebrate the culmination of this two year project which aims to empower young people in Newman, Port Hedland and eastern Pilbara communities through art making; learning from senior artists and community members to further develop their artistic practice.
