Supranational: new work from the Buku-Larrngay Centre

When: Tuesday, 17 November - Friday, 29 January
Where: Australian Consulate-General, 150E 42nd Street, Floor 34, New York, NY
Hours: Monday-Friday, 10am-5pm

This exhibition brings together bark paintings, etchings and video work by Yolngu artists from the Buku-Larrnggay Mulka Centre in Yirrkala - a pristine Aboriginal coastal community in north-eastern Arnhem Land, Australia.

Art making is integral to Yolngu spirituality. Theirs is a philosophy of continual learning: one's knowledge of the Law, the Land, ceremony, natural phenomena and where one fits in the universal life cycle is vivified and expressed through art.

This exhibition offers an index of contemporary Yolngu art, where tradition meets innovation in this ever-evolving expression of sacred identity. More⇒

Natasha Johns-Messenger: Threefold

When: Friday, 18 September - Sunday 29 November
Hours: Thursday-Sunday, 1-6pm and by appointment
Where: El Museo de Los Sures, 120 South 1st Street (Between Bedford Avenue and Berry Street), Brooklyn, NY

El Museo de Los Sures and International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP) are pleased to present the first US solo exhibition of the respected Australian-born artist, Natasha Johns-Messenger. The exhibition, titled ThreeFold, is curated by Melissa Bianca Amore, and presents an interactive installation that directly disrupts the spatial continuity and perceptual reading of the space at El Muse de Los Sures. The site, a small-scale street-level gallery on the ground floor of a low-income housing unit in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, is the focus of the artist's investigation both as a subject and a pictorial object.
