The Kimberley is a region of approximately 420,000 square kilometres (262500 square miles), bordering the Indian Ocean in the northwest corner of Australia. It is a rugged landscape of great variety, from the mountain plateaus of the Durack and King Leopold ranges, to huge inhospitable areas such as the Tanami and Great Sandy Deserts, the majestic beauty of the Bungle Bungles, and extensive river systems such as the Fitzroy River. Climate wise, the Northern half of the Kimberley is dominated by the seasonal monsoonal rains controlled by ancestral beings known as Wandjina. To the south and West, Aridity increases, these areas are dominated by the Tanami and Great Sandy Deserts. The Kimberley is one of the major areas for rock art in Australia, it is the home of the famous Bradshaw and Wandjina figures which are still painted today. Due to it's isolation and the rugged terrain it was not until the 1880s that European colonisation began in the Kimberley. During this period, towns such as Fitzroy crossing were established. Colonisation also brought much violence to the Kimberley region with a number of massacres in the area, up until the early 20th century.

Join independent art historian Megan Smetzer this Monday in a lecture about how contemporary bead artists challenge the "feathers and beads" stereotype through the creation of works that often viscerally address gender-based violence and ecological destruction. Explore the creativity and innovation central to beading practices, and how they also express the power of beauty and resilience. Register online or by phone at 604-925-7270; drop-ins welcome, space permitting!

Here is another throwback to 2013 when 4 artists from Papulankutja visited us for an exhibition of their artwork. So many happy memories 🖤 Pictured here are artists Janet Forbes, Jennifer Mitchell and Narelle Holland. In these artist’s paintings, Kura Ala and Kungkarangkalpa, Wati Kutjarra and other Ngaanyatjarra stories and knowledge, are the solid foundations of the reordering of place and ancestral presence in contemporary works. Their motif is the mutable desert landscape, and its power is revealed through the artist’s ability to express important ceremonial and ancestral connections, collectively memorised, in a contemporary way. See ‘Places and Stories’: a collection of works from remote desert communities @purplenoongallery ⭐️⭐️⭐️ Open 11:00am - 4:00pm This weekend 🖤#stories#landscape#knowledge#aboriginalart#postphdlife#ngaanyatjarralands#textures#culture#keepingculturestrong
Kayla was just in Lake Babine Nation last week with our friend Andrea from the FNHA. They were both gifted wonderful paintings. We thank the Lake Babine Nation for having us on their territory and sharing their knowledge with us over the course of the week. We did some great workshops on Decolonizing Harm Reduction, Naloxone Training, and Sexual Wellbeing!⠀

Thank you all for your patience during our planning hiatus! We have been planning and scheming the past few months and are almost ready to announce our 2019 projects. We are so excited to showcase more Indigenous contemporary art in Edmonton! Stay tuned for announcements in the coming weeks.
Here’s a #throwback to Ociciwan’s very first Project, Walter Scott’s “Scene Report with Wendy”, for Edmonton’s inaugural Nuit Blanche on September 26, 2015 to tide you over until the projects are announced. 📸: Eric Kozakiewicz @arcanitestudios
