Tjarlirli Art, Tjukurla
Applications close August 10, 2018
Tjarlirli Art Centre represents the artists of Tjukurla in the Ngannyatjarra lands of Western Australia and Kaltukatjara in the Northern Territory. The artwork has strong links with the Papunya Tula movement as families left Kintore and Kiwirrkurra to return to their homelands in the mid 1980s.
Tjarlirli Art is seeking two new arts professionals to help manage and grow their business across the two communities of Tjukurla (WA) and Kaltukatjara (NT). The Art Centre Manager will be based in Tjukurla Community (WA) and is responsible for the Art Centre Coordinator based in Kaltukatjara (NT). These exciting arts management roles operate cohesively together to achieve the goals and vision of the art centre directors and artists.
Tjarlirli’s core business is the preservation, maintenance and promotion of the art work of the Ngaanyatjarra people by nurturing the development of traditional and contemporary artistic practice, exploring new mediums and innovative opportunities for creative expression.
Tjarlirli artists are represented by leading galleries such as RAFT Artspace (Alice Springs), Aboriginal and Pacific Art (Sydney), William Mora Gallery (Melbourne), Outstation Gallery (Darwin) and Short St Gallery (Broome).
