Mparntwe (Alice Springs), NT
Tangentyere Artists is an Aboriginal-owned, not-for-profit enterprise that is the central hub for arts activities across the Town Camps of Mparntwe (Alice Springs). These include the internationally renowned Yarrenyty Arltere Artists at Larapinta Town Camp. We provide a studio, gallery and outreach program, supporting emerging and established artists. Tangentyere Artists also welcomes Aboriginal artists visiting from remote communities, offering an open environment where people from across Central Australia can sit down together to create artworks and share skills and stories.
Tangentyere’s artists are renowned for figurative paintings, diversity of mark making, rich colour palettes and embracing traditional and contemporary Aboriginal art making. They have recently extended their arts practice to include short animations. Through their art, Town Camp artists communicate stories about their families, identity and everyday lives, showing the everyday experience of Aboriginal people in Central Australia.
