Puṉuku Tjukurpa is an exhibition celebrating the stories and Law of Anangu culture told through intricate carvings and artefacts. The first touring exhibition of artworks from the Maruku Arts archive based at Mutitjulu near Uluru in the Northern Territory, Puṉuku showcases a rich, sacred history.
Exploring guilty pleasures of the human psyche, Apologies to Roadkill: life and death in contemporary Australian art outlines vulnerability, mortality and the cyclical nature of life in works by 11 Australian artists from across the country.
One of the last fully initiated Wardaman elders, Yidumduma Bill Harney is regarded by many as a national living treasure, the quintessential Renaissance man using his paintings, carvings, songs and storytelling to communicate his Indigenous knowledge to the world.
This exhibition showcases works from four art centres in the Katherine Region; Durrmu Arts (Peppimenarti), Merrepen Arts (Daly River), Djilpin Arts (Beswick and Katherine) and Ngukurr Arts (Ngukurr).
