'Yiwarra Kuju: The Canning Stock Route Exhibition featured stories and stunning artworks from senior and emerging Aboriginal artists and traditional custodians who returned to their Country in Australia’s Western Desert. All artworks from the Yiwarra Kuju Exhibition were developed by the National Museum of Australia and FORM.' National Museum of Australia
In 2007, nearly 70 Aboriginal artists travelled through the Canning Stock Route - a track in Western Australia along which cattle could be driven from Kimberley stations in the north to markets in the south - to return to places they had left as children, reconnect with family or reclaim histories. The resulting artworks are extremely culturally significant and represent the stock route's impact and the importance of the country around it.
