OUR STARS exhibition wins NSW IMAGinE Award
Hazelhurst's 2016 partnership exhibition with the artists and art centres of the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunyjatjara (APY) Lands, South Australia, has won a MGNSW IMAGinE Award (Exhibition Project – Galleries 3-10 paid staff). Nganampa Kililpil: OUR STARS (15 October – 11 December 2016) was the first major survey exhibition from the artists of the APY Lands of central Australia. The Lands are home to some of the best known and most innovative Indigenous artists in Australia.
Earlier this year Hazelhurst also received a National Award for Local Government – Promoting Indigenous Recognition for the OUR STARS project and were highly commended in the Museums & Galleries National Awards (Museums Australia) – Temporary Exhibitions Category.
2018 will bring another exciting collaboration between Hazelhurst and the APY Lands artists with the landmark exhibition, Weapons for the Soldier, curated by artists Robert Fielding (Mimili Maku, Mimili), Vincent Namatjira (Iwantja Arts, Indulkana) and Anwar Young (Tjala Arts, Amata).
