Desert Masterpieces from the Helen Read Collection
The Australian Embassy in Paris is proud to present the exhibition Luminous – Desert Masterpieces from the Helen Read Collection from 10 October 2012 to 6 May 2013.
The exhibition features 30 contemporary paintings from communities across the vast central and western desert regions, including Walungurru (Kintore), Yuendumu, Utopia and the outstations from where many of the original Papunya Tula artists originated. The exhibition at the Australian Embassy in Paris is designed to illustrate how the early painting movement from the 1970s has developed into one of the most significant contemporary art movements of the late 20th century.
