Nganampa Tjukurpa- Our Dreaming about our country

New Paintings from Kaltjiti Arts

Welcome to Nganampa Tjukurpa,

an exhibition showcasing the rich artistic heritage and
vibrant contemporary expressions of the artists from the Kaltjiti Arts Centre.
Situated in the remote Aboriginal community of Kaltjiti, in the Anangu
Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY) Lands of South Australia, the art centre
has been a vital hub for cultural preservation and artistic innovation since
its establishment.

The artists of Kaltjiti draw upon their deep connection to country and the ancient
narratives of the Tjukurpa (Dreaming) to create works that transcend time and
space. Through vibrant colors, intricate dotting techniques, and bold
compositions, they share tories of creation, ancestral journeys, and the
ongoing relationship between people, land, and spirit.

The unique artistic style of Kaltjiti artists is characterized by its fusion of
traditional iconography with contemporary forms, reflecting both the continuity
of cultural practices and the adaptability of Indigenous art in response to
modern contexts. Each artwork is a testament to the resilience and creativity
of APY artists, who continue to assert their presence and assert their cultural
identity in a rapidly changing world.

The artists working at Kaltjiti are deeply optimistic about the future of their art centre.
They see their creative practice as a means of empowerment, healing, and
community building, and are committed to sharing the beauty and significance of
their artwork with the world.

Nganampa Tjukurpa is presented at the APY Gallery Naarm/Melbourne, which is part of the APY Art Centre Collective. Founded in 2013, the APY Art Centre Collective is a
groundbreaking initiative that provides support, resources, and opportunities

voices, foster cross-cultural understanding, and generate economic
opportunities for Aboriginal communities.
