Holmes à Court Gallery presents Balgo works from the Holmes à Court Collection.
Balgo, deep in the Western Desert, is one of the most isolated desert settlements in Australia. Known for their use of strong, bright colours, the Balgo people were inspired by the success of the Papunya painting movement to start expressing their culture through modern mediums. This exhibition includes early works by Eubena Nampitjin, Wimmitji Tjapangarti, Susie Bootja Bootja Napangati and Ena Gimme Nungarrayi.
