Special Sunday Tour with Anthropologist Fred Myers
In this very special tour, anthropologist and professor Fred Myers will give a tour of our current exhibition, Irrititja Kuwarri Tjungu |Past & Present Together: Fifty Years of Papunya Tula Artists. Myers co-edited the exhibition catalog of the same name and contributed to the online exhibition. He is fluent in Pintupi and conducted field work in central Australia in the early 1970s when the earliest Papunya artists had just begun painting – artists who would go on to become the painting legends we know them to be today. Myers continues to work with Pintupi communities today. He is Silver Professor of Anthropology at New York University and has published extensively.
