Balgo Beginnings

Free exhibition presented as part of Tarnanthi 2021

2021 marks the 40th anniversary of the Balgo art movement’s beginnings. It also marks the first time many of the earliest paintings from Balgo will be publicly displayed alongside vibrant new works created in response. Balgo is an art historical narrative with most of the early pages torn out.

Balgo is one of the most famous schools of desert art. On the fringe of the Kimberley and Desert it is home to multiple language groups who settled there over the course of the twentieth century. Stylistic diversity, born of this cultural complexity, and wild colour have long been a hallmark of the artists’ aesthetic. Beyond this collective vibrancy, Balgo has also been home to some of the most revered figures in modern Western Desert painting.
