Supranational: New work from the Buku-Larrngay Centre

When: Now showing until 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⇒
