In conjunction with Marking the Infinite: Contemporary Women Artists from Aboriginal Australia, the museum is screening two short documentaries Nyapanyapa: The Constant Artist and Bush Plum: The Contemporary Art of Angelina Pwerle.
Both artists’ works are included in the Newcomb Art Museum exhibition.
Bush Plum is a visual poem, capturing the imagery and connection between Angelina Pwerle’s painting and country. Central Australia is a place of extraordinary power and beauty, the art from this place is a mirror, a spiritual reflection of beliefs, of culture, of country, of its plants and animals. (duration 32 min.)
The Constant Artist introduces viewers to Nyapanyapa Yunupingu, beginning at the VCA Print Workshop at the Victorian College of the Arts in Melbourne and later at her art centre in East Arnhem Land. (duration 30 min)
