Converging Currents: Bark painting from Arnhem Land

Exhibition and Shows

6 Jan 2021 to 26 Apr 2021 Daily Event

Converging Currents presents key works from the Gallery’s collection by artists from across Arnhem Land – from the stone country of the Bininj Kunwok people in the west to the saltwater homelands of the Yolŋu in the northeast.

In Arnhem Land, as in many Aboriginal societies, knowledge is shared through the act of making and by passing on important protected cultural stories from one generation to the next. Displayed to reveal specific intergenerational groupings, this exhibition of more than thirty bark paintings and sculptures affirms the continuity of culture across time and place.

Integral to the display is a series of new acquisitions that further highlight important cultural and familial lineages and creative relationships between artists.
