The Mary Kunyi Legacy

Exhibition Date

Exhibition Type

For the first time ever, this exhibition brings major works by Mary Kunyi together from collections across the country to highlight the significance of her contribution to Indigenous Art History as well as the now iconic artistic style of the Daly River region.

Mary Kunyi (Kanngi) (1925–2005) was one of the first settlers of the Daly River mission who went on to become a widely collected artist.

The exhibition will also feature new works from artists who have been influenced by Kunyi, including Kieren Karritipul. This exhibition is being produced in partnership with Mary’s family and Merrepen Arts; curated by Dr Cathy Laudenbach and Clare Armitage.
