Pila Nguru presents the stunning and detailed commentary of Spinifex Country by the Traditional Owners of the area, as part of the first Native Title determination in Western Australia. This exhibition is a unique opportunity to contemplate the depth and cultural range of traditional attachment to land that, in 2000, allowed the community to successfully negotiate a wide-ranging Native Title agreement with the West Australian State Government. Moved from their lands due to the Maralinga nuclear trials in the 1950s, Traditional Owners returned to Country in the late 1980s. Following the 1992 Mabo Native Title determination, began their own pursuit of native title recognition, mapping Country and negotiating cultural boundaries with neighbouring groups. The Spinifex people began producing artworks that celebrated the successful outcome of their claim. Two large canvases, one painted by the men and one painted by the women, were produced which documented birthplaces and associated Jukurrpa's (lore/stories) from Spinifex Country. Both paintings were then formally included in the preamble of the final land agreement between the Spinifex People and the Western Australian Government passed through state parliament. Today, these incredibly significant artworks continue to make clear the link between people and Country. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander visitors are advised that this exhibition may contain images and voices of people who have since passed.

Chilled, Antarctic life, Inside and Out – this National Archives of Australia exhibition invites you into the daily lives of the extraordinary people stationed at one of the most remote places on earth. Discover the incredible resilience of the people chosen to be expeditioners and the many creative ways in which they tackle the dangers, isolation and responsibilities of living on the world’s iciest continent. Australia has a long association with Antarctica, dating back to when Douglas Mawson led the first Australasian Antarctic Expedition in 1911. The Australian Antarctic Territory came into effect in 1936, and the first Australian National Antarctic Research Expedition (ANARE) mission in 1947 established permanent Australian stations to support scientific and exploratory work.
