Five Generations: the strength of Namatjira’s legacy

Developed in partnership with Araluen Art Centre, Ngurratjuta Iltja Ntjarra and big hART.

With a history spanning almost eight decades and five generations, the Hermannsburg School of watercolour artists has contributed considerably to the visual arts in this country. The movement, with its hero Albert Namatjira, is alive and strong today due to the commitment of the successive generations of artists who have followed in his footsteps. This exhibition explores the generations who have painted from the mid-1930s to the present day.

Curated from the Araluen Arts Centre, Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory, and the Ngurratjuta Iltja Ntjarra permanent collections and underpinned by recent works from the Ngurratjuta Many Hands Art Centre and the fifth generation painting at Ntaria School, this exhibition is a celebration of the strength and significance of the watercolour movement across the generations and into the future.
