Martu Don’t Need A Map

Experiencing the Western Desert landscape through the eyes of the indigenous Martu people provides rare glimpes into the complex and fascinating relationship between its people and their land. We don’t need a map: Martu experience of the Western Desert travels to McClelland Sculpture Park and Gallery from Fremantle Arts Centre, Western Australia bringing to light a visual narrative full of insights and observations out of the realm of the ordinary.

Exhibiting spectacular paintings, aerial photography, cultural objects, drawings, video installation and soundscape, along with photographic portraits, this exhibition shows how innate knowledge and familiarity with their landscape means Martu people don’t need to rely on anything other than themselves to navigate, find food and water and create artwork and story unique to the Western Australian desert.

This is a cultural experience not to be missed, see this evocative exhibition at McClelland Sculpture Park and Gallery, 390 McClelland Drive, Langwarrin. Entry free, but donations help support this wonderful cultural resource open Tuesday to Friday from 10 am to 5pm. or 9789 1671.
