From the official exhibition website:
"A new exhibition uniting artists from two Pilbara Aboriginal art centres celebrates the sharing of knowledge between senior pujiman artists and younger practitioners. Pujiman, which means bush or desert born and dwelling, is the creative culmination of a two year collaboration between Spinifex Hill Artists and Martumili Artists and includes work from more than twenty artists from both art centres in the mediums of animation, filmmaking, photography, drawing and acrylic painting.
The project entailed a significant, week long artist camp at Punmu community, situated in the heart of Martu Country, on the edge of the Great Sandy and Gibson deserts in 2017. Artist and cultural advisor for Martumili Artists Nola Ngalangka Taylor highlighted the significance of creating opportunities to bring older and younger generations together. “Pujiman days are almost gone, but to keep it up you need to be sharing. There’s so much lost, but we need to keep sharing to keep it alive,” Ms Taylor said."
