Town Camp Yarns

Town Camp Yarns is a homage to the sometimes wonderful and sometimes complex conditions of the town camps that Tangentyere artists work and live in. The artwork shows the importance of place, of real people, of positive stories and of difficult stories. The paintings are filled with pride and power in the most colourful way possible. With around 400 artists working in the town camps they are in a unique position to reflect the breadth and depth of Central Australia’s cultural diversity. Short St Gallery seeks to celebrate the diversity and fun that is the style and story of the artists and their communities. Town Camp Yarns is a survey show that is as diverse and complex as the places the artists come from. Filled with humour and hope, it has something for everyone to enjoy. The exhibition will be available to view in the gallery from November the 28th. All are welcome
