Ngurra means home in the languages of Australia’s Western Desert people. NGURRA: Home in the Ngaanyatjarra Lands is an exhibition not simply about art, but an exploration of where Ngaanyatjarra art comes from, and the homelands it speaks to.
Through painting, sculpture, film and other new media, the exhibition explores the lives of Ngaanyatjarra people and their relationships to their ngurra, across space and time. The exhibition highlights the creativity, productivity, and ingenuity of Ngaanyatjarra people, not just through their art, but through their art of living.
