Border Lines brings together artworks from the Tjanpi Desert Weavers, Papulankutja Artists and Warakurna Artists. The artists represented live and work within the Ngaanyatjarra Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (NPY) Lands, which cover approximately 350,000 square kilometres across the tri-state (WA, SA, NT) border region of central Australia.

These artworks demonstrate the artists’ connection to the lands and how their ability to maintain this connection has prevailed despite repeated colonial incursions and challenging circumstances. The works represent resilience, both personal and cultural, as well as a drive to be valued, recognised and self-sufficient.

Border Lines allows a unique and precious insight into the lives and histories of the communities living in one of the most remotely inhabited places in the world.

These works are highly significant in terms of being at the forefront of the longest continuum of cultural practice of any civilisation in human history.
