Western Desert Mob at the Melbourne Museum

The Melbourne Museum has an exhibition titled Yamatji Pirni: Many Friendships, which is running until the 22nd February 2009.

It is a collection of paintings, woodcarving and weaving from the Western Desert Mob, an alliance of six art centres across the Ngaanyatjarra Lands. Over 40 artists are represented in the exhibition.
Members of Western Desert Mob Alliance are Aboriginal owned and governed, with transparent operations where 65% of the art proceeds return directly to the artist. The remainder is reinvested into the art centre business.

Knowing many of the artists and also having some of their work I can only urge you to attend the exhibition if you are in Melbourne.

  1. Gorgeous detailed art. Curious to know what materials are used to set mosaic pattern? How about paints? Hand-made aboriginal art moves me.
