Balnhdhurr – A Lasting Impression

  • Margaret Whitlam Galleries (map)

Explore Balnhdhurr – A Lasting Impression, presented by Artback NT in association with Buku-Larrnggay Mulka Centre.

In a remote corner of Arnhem Land sits Yirrkala Print Space, where, for over twenty years, the ancient craft of printmaking has not only survived, but prospered. This is a celebratory exhibition of a remarkable space, and a remarkable printmaking output.

Join visiting Yolngu artists Ruby Alderton, Bitharr Maymuru and Whitney Marika along with Dr Denise Salvestro for an engaging and informative talk on the exhibition that explores the rich cultural and artistic underpinnings of the works on display.

Following the talk there is an opportunity to participate in a printmaking workshop with the artists to create your own visual response to the exhibition and learn some Yolngu Matha on the way. Bookings essential as places are limited.

On display: 9 August - 25 October 2019 | 10am-4pm Wednesday-Friday and 11am-4pm Saturday 7 September
