  • Little Bit Long Way   Dame Elisabeth Murdoch Gallery, Woodleigh School,

    Fri Nov 15 2013 - Sun Nov 17 2013

    The exhibition, curated and presented by McCulloch & McCulloch comprised more than 80 paintings, ceramics, barks and carvings from 22 arts centres from around Australia. The aim of the exhibition was to raise funds from sales of works for travel costs for elders and students from the North-East Arnhem Land Miwatj region and the Eastern Desert's Ampilatwatja community to visit the Peninsula and engage with the Woodleigh community of students, parents and teachers.

    For the last five years Woodleigh School has supported students from Arnhem Land and the Eastern Deserts to travel to Melbourne and the Mornington Peninsula to participate in cross cultural exchanges and educational opportunities. Elders in both communities want their children to have these experiences, however funding cuts by the N.T government meant the planned trips for 2013-14 needed to be cancelled.

    20% of sales of works from Little Bit Long Way was donated to the School's Indigenous programme to enable elders and students from remote regions to engage in these life changing opportunities. Two artists from Buku Larrnggay Mulka centre, East Arnhem Land were also funded by donors to travel to the Peninsula to participate in the exhibition. Sales from the exhibition were very successful and the event also attracted significant donations, such that sufficient funds were raised for travel costs for Indigenous participants to visit the Peninsula in early 2015.

  • The Kanpi Car Show  

    Mon Mar 05 2012 - Sun Mar 25 2012
    SALT CONTEMPORARY ART, Queenscliff, Vic.

    Curated by McCulloch & McCulloch and presented at Salt Contemporary, Queenscliff in partnership with Tjungu Palya. This special exhibition by the Baker family and related artists of Tjungu Palya to raise funds for a 4WD for ceremonial purposes. Nine artists of the tiny Indigenous-owned Pitjantjatjara homeland community of Kanpi in South Australia's far north-west spent the summer months of 2011-12 painting a selection of very special works with the aim of raising enough money for the purchase of a 4WD to be used specifically for ceremonial journeys. All members of one extended family, the artists Marita Baker, Kay Baker, Ruth Fatt, David Miller, Teresa Baker, Milpati Baker, Maureen Baker, Kani Patricia Tunkin and Anton Baker work with the arts centre Tjungu Palya, based at Nyapari, 15 k from their tiny community.

    Most are relatives of the late great artist and traditional healer Jimmy Baker (c. 1915-2010). A rare collaborative work by Mr Baker and his son Anton was included in the exhibition and works by his daughter Kay Baker and those of the other artists represented in the show share a similar dynamism, mastery of colour and strong iconography to Mr Baker's.  Artists ranged in age from their 70s to early 30s such as Baker's grand-daughters Teresa Baker and Kani Patricia Tunkin who have been hailed as some of Australia's most exciting new artistic talents since they first started painting with Tjungu Palya around 2008.

    The exhibition was successful and the artists were able to purchase their special 4WD shortly after.
