Parrtjima: A Festival in Light 2020

Watch the natural canvas of the MacDonnell Ranges in Central Australia come alive in this annual showcase of the nation’s oldest living culture – presenting new artworks, light installations and a series of programs. With this year’s focus on water, country and cosmos, seven artworks by artists from seven different art centres from the Central and Western Desert region, will be on show with Kumalie Kngwarraye Riley’s glowing sphere – seven metres in diameter and suspended three metres in the air as the centrepiece.
