We don’t need a map: a Martu experience of the Western Desert is a groundbreaking exhibition that brings the remote WA desert to regional Australia. First shown at Fremantle Arts Centre in 2012, this critically acclaimed and popular show melds the traditional culture of the Martu people with cutting edge new media artists from across Australia. Featuring stunning paintings, digital animation, immersive video installations, aerial desert photography, handmade Martu objects and a public program featuring key Martu participants, We don’t need a map invites visitors to interact with the lively and enduring culture of the Western Desert.
The original We don’t need a map exhibition was the result of a partnership between Fremantle Arts Centre, Martumili Artists and Kanyirninpa Jukurrpa and BHP Billiton. This national tour is made possible with the support of The Australia Council for the Arts, Martu People Limited, Western Australia’s Department of Culture and the Arts and Lotterywest.
“It is like stepping into another world. Through paint, drawing, moving image, installation and photography, audiences are teleported to and enveloped by the dusty red, demanding and mesmerising environment that is Martu country.”
Laetitia Wilson, The West Australian, January 2013
