Kuḻaṯa Tjuṯa is both a celebration of contemporary Aṉangu art and an exquisite record of a landmark European exhibition of works from the Aṉangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY) Lands of South Australia. Produced by the Art Gallery of South Australia for its first international Tarnanthi exhibition, this multilingual publication superbly illustrates in full-colour images and the artists’ own words the creative scope, adaptive genius and artistic dynamism of Aṉangu culture today. The Kuḻaṯa Tjuṯa (‘Many Spears’) exhibition, currently at the Musée des Beaux-Arts in Rennes, France, features vibrant paintings, expressive photographs and bold installation work by some thirty-five artists from APY art centres. The exhibition will not be seen in Australia, making this book a rich and rare account of an outstanding international exhibition.
