Alcaston Gallery is proud to present new paintings by senior artists and elders Peter Mungkuri OAM and Alec Baker in Nganana Ngura Nganampa Ninti - We Know Our Country Well.

Nganana Ngura Nganampa Ninti - We Know Our Country Well showcases the immense knowledge of Country, culture, and history held by these two important senior men, both of whom were actively involved in the land rights movement for their ancestral Country and campaigned for the return of land ownership to the Yankunytjatjara and Pitjantjatjara peoples.

Accentuating each artists’ distinctive style, this collection conveys the unparalleled reverence and profound understanding Baker and Mungkuri have for their Country, and the broader Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY) Lands of Central Australia.

 

Respected elder and cultural leader on the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY) Lands, Alec Baker has become a highly revered and significant contemporary artist as his creative practice matures, with his vibrant mark making reflecting a deep knowledge for Country and culture.

Baker’s artistic career has soared to new heights in recent years, receiving several prestigious accolades in 2021 including being named as a finalist in the Hadley’s Art Prize, in Hobart Tasmania, and announced as the winner of the Bayside Acquisitive Art Prize, presented by the Bayside Gallery at the Brighton Town Hall in Melbourne.

From 15 October 2021 – 30 January 2022 Baker will present a solo exhibition at Australia’s leading Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art festivals, Tarnanthi at the Art Gallery of South Australia in Adelaide in South Australia, which boasts one of the most ambitious, innovative, and diverse contemporary art experiences to date.
