17 February – 28 April @ Port Hedland Courthouse Gallery ·
Presented by FORM ·
Pujiman is a collaboration featuring artworks from the senior pujiman (desert born) and young emerging artists of Martumili Artists and Spinifex Hill Artists. The senior pujiman artists are the last desert born people of their generation, and in this exhibition they have shared their knowledge, stories and techniques with the younger artists to ensure the continuation of the oldest living culture on earth.
Learn Me is the debut solo exhibition of Pilbara-based artist Ruth Leigh, who has captured the artists she has worked with during her four years in the region. It is rare to have an exhibition which showcases the artists of another exhibition, and even rarer to have both shows running concurrently in one gallery.
