Photo and Description
The Gondwana Gallery in Alice Springs contains a vast collection of contemporary art from the Aboriginal people of Australia and neighboring countries that once - millions of years ago - were part of the single supercontinent of Gondwana. It is no coincidence that the gallery was named after the largest continent in the southern hemisphere - thus emphasizing Australia's connection with other countries in the Pacific region. And today the gallery serves as a conduit between different cultures, providing an opportunity for everyone to express themselves.
Since its founding in 1990, the gallery has been actively promoting contemporary aboriginal art, organizing various exhibitions of both recognized and emerging artists, as well as implementing educational programs. The gallery's exhibition spaces also frequently exhibit expositions of other art and cultural institutions in Australia.
The gallery has a Studio that employs artists - this is where some renowned masters came from, such as Dorothy Napangardi. Often the gallery arranges tours for its artists to the Red Center of Australia, to places associated, according to aboriginal beliefs, with the "creation of the world." It is there that many draw inspiration and get an incentive for creativity. And a dedicated gallery department is looking for talented Aboriginal artists in remote communities across the country.
