ABC News (Australia) published this video item, entitled “Celebrating 50 years of the Papunya Aboriginal art movement | ABC News” – below is their description.

50 years ago, Australia’s contemporary art scene was rocked by work it had never experienced before. The rise of modern Aboriginal art took the world by storm and was born from the remote Northern Territory community of Papunya. 2021 marks an important milestone for a movement that lifted communities and changed the way we look at art.

  • In This Story: Northern Territory

    The Northern Territory (aka NT) is a vast federal territory in Australia famed for its Outback desert landscapes. In the arid Red Centre lie the iconic sandstone monolith Uluru (Ayers Rock), the red-rock domes of Kata Tjuta and the sculpted cliffs of Kings Canyon in Watarrka National Park.

    Alice Springs is the gateway town to the Red Centre desert.

    The NT covers 1,349,129 square kilometres (520,902 sq mi). It is sparsely populated, with a population of only 245,353.

    The economy is based largely on mining and petroleum, which during 2018–2019 contributed 23% of the gross state product, or $5.68 billion, accounting for 92.4% of exports.

    The capital and largest city is Darwin. The population is concentrated in coastal regions and along the Stuart Highway.
