Bringing the desert to the city, We don’t need a map is a major new exhibition celebrating the distinct and joyful visual language of the Martu and their connection to country. This expansive exhibition, taking place at Fremantle Arts Centre from November to January, provides a nuanced insight into Martu life and cultural practice, capturing the humour and spirit of the Martu people and providing an opportunity for urban audiences to immerse themselves in the sights, sounds, smells and tastes of desert life.
The Martu are the traditional owners of a vast area of Western Australia’s Western Desert, covering over 20 million hectares. We don’t need a map is a celebratory statement that expresses their deeply embedded understanding of the Western Desert and the layered interpretations of the land.
