8 May 2013 | Warburton Arts Project is about to begin its second touring show of art museums throughout China.

Warburton Arts Project is based in Ngaanyatjarra Lands, approximately 350 kilometres west of Uluru in Western Australia. The exhibition will showcase major paintings, textiles, glass art and a 20 channel screen and sound installation by Ngaanyatjarra artists, as well as photographs taken by local children at the remote desert Wanarn Community School.

The exhibition, titled
Tu Di - Shen Ti / Our Land, Our Body toured seven museums in Eastern China during 2011, where it was seen by over 250,000 people. An expanded version of Tu Di - Shen Ti will now tour eight art museums across Western China from June 2013 until March next year. All text in the exhibition, including a colour catalogue, will be fully translated.

Ngaanyatjarra artists, senior community members and schoolchildren will attend openings and receptions during the tour. The exhibition opens on 3 June this year at Guan Cheng Art Museum in Guandong Province and will end at Jiangxi Art Museum in Jiangxi Province on 31 March 2014.
