Mimili Maku Arts

Mimili Maku Arts is a vibrant contemporary art studio located on the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY) lands, in the remote North-West of South Australia. The studio offers support to artists across a range of different media such as painting, photography and sculpture. It is a place for intergenerational exchange and learning. Director Mumu Mike Williams says: ‘At Mimili Maku Arts we work together: The old men and women side by side with their children and grandchildren. This is Anangu way.’ The art centre’s name refers to the Maku (witchetty grub) Tjukurpa, which is ever present in the paintings of senior artists like Betty Kuntiwa Pumani (winner NATSIAA 2015 & 2016, winner Wynne Prize 2017), Ngupulya Pumani (finalist NATSIAA 2015, finalist Wynne Prize 2017), Tuppy Goodwin (finalist NATSIAA 2018) and Puna Yanima. Owned and led by a strong board of Anangu directors, Mimili Maku Arts continues to be the cultural heartbeat of community.
