Elders, directors, and artists of the APY Art Centre Collective are thrilled to celebrate the opening of APY Gallery Melbourne with the inaugural exhibition, Mapakani - Momentum. This First Nations’ artist-owned gallery will profile the dynamic and innovative work from talented early-career artists of the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY) Lands, Coober Pedy and Adelaide.
“My Elders have worked relentlessly for years creating opportunities for younger people like myself. Now their hard work is paying off. The APY Art Centre Collective has momentum now. My elders have big plans, I know they are unstoppable. Our new gallery in Melbourne will be incredible.”
