Collectively named Pinakarriluny Marnalunya Ngalimpakura Artists Jarlu Palu Wantinya (in dedication to our artists who have left us), this exhibition brings together living and deceased female artists from Mangkaja Arts Resource Agency that has boasted some of the most important female Indigenous artists of the last quarter century. This is a collection of works by established artists Sonia Kurarra, Daisy Japulija, Tjigila Nada Rawlins and Lisa Uhl, paying homage to the recently departed doyenne of the art centre, Mrs. Snell.
Curated over the last 18 months, this showcase also boasts a significant body of works on paper by Sonia Kurarra. We see a fresh and appealing mix of traditional and modern technique, blending all the skills and attributes that the public has come to expect of an artist at the forefront of the new modern contemporary Indigenous art movement, securing the position of this seminal art community.
This exhibition will run concurrently with another solo show by Ngarralja Tommy May, a senior painter of Mangkaja Arts, who is now one of the oldest and most respected Indigenous figures in the Kimberley region of Western Australia.
The exhibition begins on Wednesday 9th March and runs until Saturday 23rd April 2016.
