Nganampa Walytja – Antara

Alcaston Gallery is thrilled to present a new exhibition, Nganampa Walytja: Antara featuring important work by sisters Betty Kuntiwa Pumani and the late Kunmanara Ngupulya Pumani (1948 – d. 2019), both traditional custodians of Antara, a sacred ceremonial site northwest of Mimili community in the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY) Lands in South Australia.

Nganampa Walytja: Antara (Pitjantjatjara for Our Family: Antara) is a celebration of family, country, and the passing down of cultural knowledge to the next generation of strong Anangu women, as we present new work by Marina Pumani Brown, daughter of Betty Kuntiwa Pumani, and Josina Pumani, daughter of the late Kunmanara Ngupulya Pumani.

This exhibition is a joyous tribute to the legacy of Kunmanara Ngupulya Pumani, featuring never-before-exhibited paintings by the artist, which are a testament to her continuing significance to Australian Indigenous art.
