Warburton Arts Project is a part of the Official Program for the ASEAN EXPO in Nanning.
Called Changsuo Jing sheng - Spirit of Place, the exhibition of 30 paintings by Ngaanyatjarra artists opened at the Yongjiang Inlet Art Museum in Nanning, Guangxi Province China. The exhibition - with paintings by Nora Holland, Betty West, Norma Giles, Christine West, Olive Lawson, Lalla West, Madeleine Jackson and Debra West - will be on display for 8 weeks and will develop marketing research profiles for the sale of Ngaanyatjarra art in China.

The Warburton Arts Community is very pleased to be part of the ASEAN Expo in Nanning. A key reason of our Tu DI Shen Ti - Our Land Our Body touring program of 16 Chinese museums bringing highlights from the collection to China in 2011 and again in 2013-2014 has been finding ways to share Australia's diverse cultural heritage with other countries in Asia, and make friends. Many years ago we realized that, besides strengthening Indigenous heritage values in our community, cultural expression could also be a way of building relationships with other people in other places. We are therefore delighted to bring the art of Ngaanyatjarra people to Nanning as part of this cultural gathering of Asian nations.
