In the early '70s, a small group of Western Desert 'painting men' at Papunya in Central Australia began to experiment with new techniques and materials. Over 25 years in the making, Lives of the Papunya Tula Artists celebrates both the individual lives of the artists and their cooperative endeavour. It showcases the importance of what they share: family and country, significant sites, tjukurrpa and life histories. Illustrated with numerous candid photographs and key artworks, this book charts the historical landscape of the Papunya Tula artists, revealing a collective creative achievement of rare genius.
