It is our great pleasure to once again partner with Elcho Island Arts to bring to you the work of some of Australia’s most renowned and sought after Yolŋu artists.
Bukmak’kuŋ Djäma Malaynha or, ‘Everyone’s Works’ will present familiar favourites such as the beloved carved birds from Megan Yunupingu and Judy Manany. We will also be introducing a new collection of carvings, weavings, painted barks, Warrabunbun and Banumbirr (Morning star poles) from Elcho artists, Dorothy Dhamarrandji Wirritjwirritj, Margaret Ganambarr Gudumurrkuwuy, Mavis Ganambarr Warrŋgilŋa, Pam Ganambarr Gawura, Paul Buwang Buwang Gurruwiwi and Sandy Pascoe.
Following Judy Manany and Megan Yunupingu’s previous Brunswick Street Gallery exhibitions Warrakan Mala (Birds) (2022), Worrurr ga Ŋerrk (Owl & Yellow Crested Cockatoo) (2021), and multi-Art Centre group exhibition Our Country (2022), Bukmak’kuŋ Djäma Malaynha will introduce you to some of Elcho Islands’ other standout artists, and is not to be missed.
