NAIDOC is a celebration of Indigenous Australian culture and an opportunity to recognize the achievements of its now internationally renowned artistic communites.
The 2012 Belongings exhibition in Singapore showcases a unique curation of paintings and sculptures from two cornerstones of the modern Indigenous art movement – the western and eastern desert. Whilst the two regions have distinct artistic traditions, there are fascinating family, iconographic and historic similarities and parallels to explore. In this rich context, art for this exhibition highlights the importance of belonging – belonging to the land, to family, to the past, to the future – all paramount to cultural revival and survival. Artworks have come from several sources, including the dynamic new Papunya Tjupi arts centre which has never before exhibited in Singapore; and showcases many styles and stories, emerging and established artists. An exciting addition to the art exhibition is a short film to be launched on opening night which was especially commissioned for the Belongings exhibition in Singapore - a collaboration between Australasian Arts Projects and Singapore-based Kiznet Project Productions.
