|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.
