In Streets of Papunya, Western Desert art expert Vivien Johnson reveals the remarkable art of the women painters of Papunya today, the rising stars of the town's new Papunya Tjupi art centre. Many are the daughters of the revolutionary Papunya Tula artists of the 1970s. She unearths the history of Papunya as a site of art production from Albert Namatjira's final paintings in Papunya; Papunya's glory days of the 1970s and '80s; its dark time as the `carpetbagging capital of the desert'; and its inspirational resurgence as its leading painters reinvent Papunya painting for the twenty-first century.
