In 1988 a Chinese artist named Zhou Xiaoping came to Australia for his solo exhibition in Melbourne. Then he took a trip to Alice Spring. Travelling alone to Uluru, he got lost in the desert on a scorching day with the temperature as high as 50°C. Miraculously, he was rescued by three Aboriginal boys. That adventure marked the beginning of Xiaoping’s 30-year journey of living with and learning from Aboriginal people and artists.
